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.
