A photo of Maasai women, with distinctly different lives than theirs, inspired Ann Brakob, Elsie Dentes, Neani Mee, Joan Watkins, and Carol Yonetz to create a group quilt reflecting the individuality and beauty of each lady in the tribe. Note the beautiful details of the jewelry, colors, and fabric selection.

Maasai Women Of Kenya by Ann Brakob with Elsie Dentes, Neani Mee, Joan Watkins, and Carol Yonetz won First Place, Group, sponsored by Hobbs Binded Fibers, at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019.

Spectacular and a special reminder to me of a group of Maasai women who sang as my family and I got off a small plane on safari in Africa. Just amazing artistry, color, patterns and design.

What a gorgeous work of art ! Love the 5 panels, separated yet joining all the women...fluidly in their beautifully artistic dress. Faces and jewelry details are wonderful too.
