Created to commemorate Juneteenth becoming an official federal holiday in the USA, Apremoo is a modern take on a traditional African-inspired pattern. Representing thunder and lightning, the design symbolizes both power and resistance, while reminding us to continue to fight for our rights. On the surface, Apremoo is a simple pattern, almost log-cabin-like. It allows the quilter to either traditionally piece or foundation paper piece the blocks depending on their skill and comfort. Although both methods will prove to be challenging, and demand patience, the result produces a fun and lively quilt, reminiscent of African symbolism.
