African American Quilts: A collaborative community project
We’re headed to the South where generations of folks still make quilts today using patterns that their ancestors did during slavery and along the infamous Underground Railroad. Take a slide show "field trip" inside quilters' homes, handle quilting pieces that are 100 years old, and create your own quilt block to add to the Library's wall-hanging quilt.
In the traditional manner of quilting bees, the Library's quilt, will be made collaboratively as a group, from fabric scraps, glue, and cardboard, and will hang and be shared publicly by the community during Black History Month along with your name next to it.
For ages 5 and older.
