Create a spiritually-uplifting wall quilt based on block designs for the African
American Sampler Quilt (AASQ) Project that swept across the internet in 2018. The wall
hanging honors “Faith” as a cornerstone of the African American community, and features two
original and two new designs by AASQ creators Cynthia Vaughn and Rhonda Masters.
Instructors will cover a variety of topics in the full day session including: best practices for using
and showcasing African fabrics and designs in your quilts; techniques to unleash your personal
quilting creativity and individuality; tips and tricks for better traditional piecing and applique; and
introduction of innovative art and traditional quilting techniques to elevate your quilting style and
skills.
The African American Sampler Quilt pattern was released on Juneteenth/Emancipation Day
2018, and for the next six months, the designing duo hosted an Internet quilt-along with
hundreds of quilters across the country. Their unique sampler quilt focuses on African American
history, heritage, family, faith and fun and is designed using a bold combination of African, batik
and traditional fabrics.
Join us as we explore The Faith Series in class. It will be a day of quilt education, inspiration,
creativity and fun!
