Fabrications 2000 Prize Winner

"Fabrications 2000," Oakland Museum of California, April 8 - June 11, 2000.

This quilt block was entered in the School Quilt Block Competition for students in grades K-12 in Alameda County; the deadline was March 17, 2000. This winning piece was exhibited in "Fabrications 2000" held in the Education Hall Galllery, April 8 - June 11, 2000. This is the Grand Prize winner done by a group of 1st and 2nd graders from Jefferson School in Berkeley under the guidance of teacher Sarah Goldstein. The pattern of the block was designed by Deanna Calhoun. Several students in the class designed quilt block; then the class voted on which ones they'd like to do and work on. Interestingly enough, Deanna Calhoun's block was the favorite one in the class; the class submitted three different blocks. It features three rows of strip piecing separated by two rows of diagonal piecing, and a single piece of rosey magenta at the top. Those students who worked on the block are: Jordan Anderson, Kali Boykin, Deanna Calhoun, Forrest Lui, Gloria Mendez and Breanna Starks. (Sarah Goldstein's also won a prize in the first "Fabrications" competition in 1998.
