    While visiting family in the Outback of Australia, Phyllis got to know the Aboriginal community. Aboriginals in central Australia have created dot art designs in sand for thousands of years. In this lecture, Phyllis will share with us how current indigenous outback artists' dot paintings are now being transformed into fabric used by quilters everywhere. Discover the true meaning of the fabric designs as they relate to Aboriginal culture and real life today in the desert outback.
