Works in Progress (During challenging times!)

While the nation's citizens have been asked to stay indoors as much as possible, it has been a good time for quilters to catch up or start new projects.

Ms. Patricia is working on this awesome 3D quilt. She has a few more rows to add on, I can't wait to see it finished.

Another Zuri member started her 1st scrap quilt, some of the remnants are from African textiles given out by a member last December. The colors are so vibrant!
The technique used was featured in a YouTube video by the Quilting Marine.

We hope everyone is staying safe and taking advantage of this time to create.

Zuri Quilting Guild Blessing of the Quilts

I lack the words to adequately express the beauty and love that has gone into the crafting of these glorious quilts! Each quilt tells a different story and exhibits a variety of styles. Textiles are such a wonderful medium to use to tell a story with the multitude of colors and patterns combined with embroidery, appliqué and other embellishments are unlimited. Anyone that was not able to attend missed a wonderful celebration.

The women of Zuri are so talented (gots skills😄)! Quilters of any skill level are welcome to join us the 2nd Saturday of each month at the American Baptist College from 11am -2pm.
God Bless!

Blessing of the Quilts!

This is a very special Zuri event in which the gifted baby quilts are blessed before being passed on. This is also a time to celebrate the anniversary of Zuri’s creation and see quilts on display. If you have the time to stop by, please do so, we would love to see you!

Happy January

January's weather has truly been up and down-warm days, thunderstorms and tornado warnings. Due to severe weather conditions, the January meeting was canceled. Everyone's safety is most important! But not to worry, I do have a couple of quilts to show!:)

The below baby quilts were made by Zuri members and will be donated to charity.

Baby Quilt 1-Boats, Boats



Baby Quilt 2-Cars and Trucks



The pattern used for the baby quilts is called Super-Sized Nine Patch and can be found on The Quilting Company website.

This quilt beautifully features influential African Americans, it would make a wonderful addition to any household.

Great work ladies! Thanks for sharing and thanks for donating.
