Description

This four-square design comes from the woven horse armour of the Fulani warriors of West Africa. Author and quilter, Kaye England, in her research ,reminds us that four of these blocks grouped around a solid center create makes what American quilters have come to know as the Ohio Star.

Some Fulani tribes still follow the stars across the desert as their nomadic ancestors have done for thousands of years. Meaningful Adinkra symbolism, stitched throughout the quilt, is a reminder that God watches over all his people because we are all ... Children of the Stars.

This two-sided quilt is a kalidescope of colors and patterns - but reds, golds and rust are predominate. Three stars in blue, green and red are featured and enhanced with textured yarns.

Graphic designer, historian and master quilter, Sue Bunch kindly quilted this piece for me.

Ready to hang with a 4" sleeve. or remove the sleeve to use as a traditional bed quilt.

Made in a pet-free and fragrance-free studio.

47" wide by 58" high
