to African mud painters from the West African country Mali, was held this entire week at the Alys B.Stephens Center, at UAB.
The black color is created, when the mud painted cotton fabric is washed in rivers containing large amount of iron. The iron acts as a mordant.

Something local for the community quilt. They are still looking for more 10 x10 blocks.
The previous day, last Tuesday to be correct, in another part of town, 15 women from the guild, lead by Kathy created 15 very different purses, all from the same pattern. Mine, by sheer coincidence, took up the African theme of my week.
