Once in a Blue Moon

Once in a Blue Moon by Aisha Lumumba

I wanted to close out Back History Month with a bang, and when I want a “wow” quilt, I can always count on Aisha Lumumba. Her quilt Once in a Blue Moon is the featured quilt of the week in the February 27, 2011 edition of the  Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter.

Aisha Lumumba

Aisha creates a striking woman of incredible beauty who obviously has adorned herself with her finest apparel. Aisha creates that effect by piecing a patchwork of many different fabrics to create her dress. A blue moon illuminates her, and by placing her on a gold background, it is as if she has stepped from darkness into light.
Since Aisha has chosen to name her quilt Once in a Blue Moon, I conclude that this lady does not dress up very often. However, she has decided on this day she will become her authentic, beautiful self.
