Thanks to everyone who supported the North Lawndale African American Heritage Quilting Project. We
completed eight quilts a couple years ago; with 5 more in progress. We have quilt blocks enough for about 3 or 4 more quilts. We have been fortunate enough to receive significant fabric and equipment donations to keep project costs down to a minimum.
After working with my mom to complete my niece’s prom dress, and literally picking up the pieces of this project started 2 years ago, I am committed to getting back in touch with my creative side, and really, REALLY learning this
quilting craft beyond putting together basic blocks. I’m checking out quilting websites and pinning them on Pinterest. I’m reading the newsletters I subscribe to but never read. I’m blowing the dust off my quilting books.
I want to be like my friends Reneau Diallo and Lisa Wilcoxen when I grow up. These women have given of themselves–their time, talent, influence and resources to ensure this project was a success. They didn’t ask for a dime in return. On top of that, you ought to check out some of the quilts they have been able to produce! I can’t thank them enough.ke my friend
