Kaye England, one of America's best-known quilters and fabric designers, is currently working on a new line for South Sea Fabrics featuring African motifs to be released in conjunction with this title. Mary Elizabeth Johnson is a well-known quilt expert and author who has written several books on quilt making, including The American Quilt with Roderick Kiracofe.From Library Journal:
The authors are not African art historians, nor do they speak from a personal African heritage; instead, they are expert quilters and quilting instructors who have been inspired by the colors, fabrics, and artistry of African design and have set out to make quilts reflecting this inspiration. After an introduction to textile design and textile arts in Africa, the authors present a "Caravan of Quilts" 16 quilt patterns inspired by African motifs and colors. As is the norm for Quilt Digest Press, color illustrations abound, and full-size quilting designs and templates are included. A good choice for public library quilting collections.
