The stunning back fabric from West Africa defines the gold tone of this quilt--hence its name. That same fabric is used to create two inlays in the quilt face. This quilt, breath-taking in its beauty, measures 51" x 51".

I choose fabrics from designers like Hoffman, Kaffe Fassett, Timeless Treasures, SSI, Heide Stoll-Weber, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman, and incorporate top quality varietals: hand painted fabrics, hand dyes, screen prints, batiks, calicoes, tie dyes, solids—mostly 100% cotton—plus brocades, sateens and sparklers.

I individually select and incorporate into each quilt, up to 100+ different fabrics collected from the U.S.A., the Caribbean, Indonesia, and Africa—particularly Ghana.

From yardage, I hand cut the fabrics randomly into large and small pieces, and sew them together by machine as inspired, not by pattern, and then border them with complementary fabrics.

I hand quilt (7-10 spi) the quilt face to the batting and the back fabric selected specifically for each quilt.

Each quilt is individually fashioned, no two exactly alike even within the same color pallette.

Each is a one-of-a-kind creation that vary by a) the choices of textures and patterns in fabrics employed, b) the placement of the fabrics in juxtaposition, c) the color combinations and shadings, and d) the style and colors of the border fabrics.

One throw pillow made of the same back fabric is available at $75.00,

Inquire if you would like a hanging sleeve added for an additional charge.

Each quilt has my embroidered signature, Carolyn Beard Whitlow, and the completion date.

This quilt was on display at the Faculty/Staff Art Exhibit at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC from September to December, 2011.
