Some years ago, Priscilla Bianchi, a quilt artist from Guatemala, came to the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild and taught a class. She brought with her some scraps of hand-woven fabrics from Guatemala to share with us. I made a small quilt I called “Dancers”. It’s still one of my favorites. I also bought her book, which is full of colorful wonderful quilts.
Just recently I found Priscilla on Facebook and was inspired again to use those bright colors. I got out some of my many stripes, including a Guatemalan fabric I bought recently (it was a “scarf” offered by a church group that has a mission there). The result is a bright red quilt I call Guatemalan Fiesta. Here they are.
