Description: This Round Robin quilt is the product of a Wa Shonaji Quilt Guild activity. We started in February/March 2020, so I chose Black History and Women’s History for a theme. These eight scientists/inventors (Lisa Gelobter, Mary Beatrice Davidson Kenner, Marian Rogers Croak, Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson, Marie Van Brittan Brown, Sarah Boone, Madam C. J. Walker, Patricia Bath) created products that improved lives yet are little known. My hope that this quilt will publicize their accomplishments so Things Won’t Be Like They Used to Be! I fashioned the center square with the women’s photos and African prints; Brenda Ames added the blue and African print pieced border; Marcia Walker sewed the brown and Seminole pieced border; Karen von Phul created the newsprint history of the women; Netta Toll completed the square with a navy border; I added the white hand stitching and cowrie shells. I love this quilt and enjoyed the Round Robin process.
