Quilting 101 with Kimberley Cartwright
Quilting has a rich tradition within the Black American Experience, telling stories and history through the artform. As with everything, Black Americans developed their own distinctive style of quilting; and the tradition continues with Hayti’s African American Quilting Circle. This virtual series of Quilting workshop’s continue this tradition with teacher, Kimberley Cartwright. Welcome to Quilting 101.
Kimberley Pierce Cartwright is a quilter and folk art painter living in Durham, NC. She is the first artist in a series to partner with Hayti Heritage Community Center to bring artists and how they produce their work to our community. In this segment Kimberley will show us how she makes her signature fabric post cards. She’ll show us how to make a simple pattern, cut out pattern pieces and sew. After you make yours you can mail it or use it for wall art. The process is easy and quick. See her work on the web at kimberleypiercecartwright.com. If you want to know more about making fabric post cards she has a new book on Amazon entitled Fabric Post Card Cat/Dog.
