Two Step 2009 Wall Calendar


The Two Step Calendar is filled with 12 exciting quilt pictures. This 2009 wall calendar celebrates the rich classic elegance of black and white through fiber art.

This calendar features a quilt and a theme for each month as the year unfolds. The cover quilt was inspired by the idea of an elegant dance as well the two colors both connoting two steps. Some of Ms. Lumumba's most exquisite quilts such as "Make Mine Dry" which is a black and white martini glass done in abstract, "Afternoon on the Serengeti" displayed on a queen sized bed, and A-T-L which is a dramatic depiction of the Atlanta skyline are in this calendar.

This calendar is an off-shoot of the highly successful Art Exhibition in 2007 at the Atrium on Sweet Auburn, Atlanta, Georgia by Aisha Lumumba, J. Stacey Grayson and Elaine Parker

Oh my goodness, I should have looked at the OBA quilts page first! You are a REAL artist! I just knew what you were working on at the show was incredibly beautiful. Do you teach somewhere?

Beautiful. How long does one quilt picture take.

It depends on the complexity of the pattern and size of the quilt, but they usually take 2 to 3 months of dedicated hours.
