Designed by Isabella 22’, this collection was created with traditional Appalachian quilt making techniques and colors in mind and is inspired by the college’s commitment to its engagement with Appalachian communities, families, and students in partnership for mutual learning, growth, and service. Bell is the middle name of Isabella’s great grandmother, who was a strong presence in her family and a passionate quilter. Quilting can be a powerful community building activity, and Isabella celebrated that in this collection by allowing each student weaver to have an impact on the outcome of each piece that is woven. Weavers choose the overall composition of the placemat or basal by re-arranging the patterns and colors from a pre-selected list. This allows for visual continuity over the collection while each finished piece is entirely different from the last, celebrating the individual voice of each contributor in our studio community.
