For making the design wall we need to stick the three layers of fabric that go into the making of the quit batting and fastening them together with the help of safety pins. Using a walking foot we need to stitch on the vertical marked line down the center of the fabric and continue sewing vertical lines out to the rim of the fabric. Once that is done we need to stitch the horizontal lines in the same manner. Once the entire vertical as well as the horizontal lines is sewn we need to straighten and square the edges.
Fortunately the definition of African American quilting became broader in the 1980s ironically enough because of the pioneering work of such women as Dr. Mazloomi herself along with a number of her contemporaries. The first African American quilting guild was formed as a result of an advertisement placed by Mazloomi in a magazine; nine women responded. Today the Women of Color Quilter`s Network has approximately 1700 members some of whom are accomplished artists speakers and authors themselves. Similar guilds have since been formed.
Often the quilt is a gift from a good friend and they want to display it on a quality rack. Some online retailers stock dozens of models. You will be able to find something that not only meets your budget but also matches your current furniture. If you have a lot of wooden things in your living room already an oak quilt rack might be a good match. Some other people might prefer something metallic. Often steel or brass racks will be available.
