One of a kind.

This folk art quilt features stylized images of the iconic baobab trees. In Madagascar, the baobab trees are considered "Mother of the Forest" and live over 1000 years.

 

In the left corner of the quilt is a net-covered actual section of peeling bark from a River Birch tree here in Georgia. The orange suns on the top and bottom, peaking over the gray hills seem to suggest to me the flow of time through the dawns to dusks of these long-living trees.

 

The beauty of the central fabric inspired a simple square-in-a-square construction method. Sometimes, I cannot bear to cut up the fabrics into too small of pieces. The striped and patterned fabrics are African batik from Ananse Village, a community of African artisans, whose work I appreciate and support.
