Quilter Marva Swanson showcases her collection of African fabrics  in this 12x12 inch art quilt. It is pieced randomly and unexpectedly. She quilted in the ditch so as to allow the fabrics to speak for the quilt. She embellished with beads and crystals for added interest.


The fabric on the back is a light brown paisley fabric. Marva signed it on the back. This quilt is one-of-a-kind. 


This art quilt was created and donated to the Atlanta Quilt Festival by African American quilter Marva Swanson who lives in Atlanta, GA. Visit the Atlanta Quilt Festival each August to see more of her quilts.
