AFRICAN AMERICAN MONUMENTAL TARGET (one large circle) VINTAGE QUILT


 
AFRICAN AMERICAN MONUMENTAL TARGET (one large circle) VINTAGE QUILT

Usually made up into small pillow faces of about 14" square, this pattern explodes in this example as a monumental exercise in piecing and color placement. In the Target, also called Pine Burr, triangles of fabric are folded and layered one row atop the previous one for a truly three-dimensional tactile result. Bold, stunning, this variation of the Target is a rarely seen graphic. Has just returned from display at the American Embassy in Dakar, Senegal as part of the Art In Embassies loan program.
