Botswana Bounty

30" H x 30" W
August 2008

Botswana Bounty is the title page quilt in 500 Art Quilts.

The brochure for the Members's Biennial at the Trout Museum of Art, where Botswana Bounty was exhibited in 2013, states that "for the longest time fiber arts were always designated to the realm of craft, but have recently been rightfully considered to be that of fine art. Gwyned Trefethen's work is exemplary in demonstrating the complicated use of color, shape and design that goes into making fiber art. Also, notice how stitching can be used in the same manner as drawing to help inform the composition."


Botswana Bounty is a Fiber Revolution inivitational quilt. Fiber Revolution member, Cindy Friedman arranged for an exhibit of quilts to tour Africa. The quilts needed to be no longer than 30" on any side and should have a connection to Botswana. The inspiration for this quilt was the intricate, high contrast traditional basket weaving patterns of Botswana. The Botswana Collection of quilts began its tour in Gaborone, Botswana in 2008 and concluded it is tour in 2012 at the Noyes Museum of Art in New Jersey.
