Last week, Debbie Grifka and I drove up to Flint to see the show, "From Heart to Hand - African American quilts from the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts"
Here are a few of the details from some of the quilts in the show.
Unknown Maker - late 20th century The red and white striped backing was carried around to the front to bind the edge. A strip of solid red was added to make the backing large enough.
Catherine Somerville - Log Cabin 1950-60I liked pretty much everything about this quilt. It was made from old jeans and khakis.
Mary Lee Bendolph - Strings 2003-4This one is made from the hip seams of pants.
Nora Ezell - Star Puzzle 2001 I am reminded of my desire to add gingham to my quilts.
Unknown maker - Crib Quilt 1945 Most of these prints have faded to the same soft look. So much pattern together but I like it with this soft look.
Yvonne Wells - Yesterday: Civil Rights in the South III - 1989 I love the free form fan quilting Yvonne Wells uses on her quilts.
