Fashioned for FLOTUS: The Alma Thomas-Michelle Obama Quilt

Featuring: Cathy Fussell

In 2016, master quilt maker Cathy Fussell was asked by the Congressional Club in Washington, D.C. to make a quilt to be presented to First Lady Michelle Obama at the annual First Lady’s Luncheon. The quilt was inspired by the art of Columbus native Alma Thomas, a favorite of the former First Lady. In this session Cathy will share her inspiration, process, and trip to Washington for the presentation of the finished piece.

If you are interested in purchasing a $10 lunch, please contact the Education Dept. at edu@columbusmuseum.com by Monday, November 13.
