Quilt the Beloved Africa free pdf The craft of African quilting is a beautifully textured and vibrant art form that bears testimony to the rich and complex nature of the African continent. In this, their third book, doyennes of the discipline Pat Parker and Jenny Williamson delve deepter into what it is that sets this relatively new style quilting apart from the more well-established American and European styles that have dominated quilting circles for hundreds of years. The quilts in "Quilt the Beloved Africa" are a fantastic mix of colourful fabrics that are the key differentiators of the African style of quilting.Another key feature of the local style of quilting is the use of images drawn from its vibrant flora, fauna, and the faces of its people.

Their work has been exhibited in Britain, Canada and the USA, where they have also successfully conducted classes and lectures.
