BLACK AMERICAN QUILTS*

BLACK AMERICAN QUILTS*

Black quilters throughout the U.S. and particularly in southern states continue to improvise sewn patterns passed down for generations.  Learn about the critical connections of enslaved peoples, crops like cotton and indigo, the Underground Railroad, and quilt making.  Use math, geometry and your imagination to create a cooperative quilt wall hanging.  Use up-cycled paper or fabric scraps and display your quilt as a whole made of many parts!

 

Best for ages 5 years to adult
