Dense background quilting makes this quilt’s stitched center pattern appear like an ornate Turkish Tazhib design. Ximo wanted to make the background quilting very dense so that it would look like woven cloth and allow the design to stand out.
Ximo spent 1 1/2 years on the quilt as he went through chemo and radiation therapy for cancer. Lyric Kinard spoke to Ximo about his quilt in Houston.
