BLACK AMERICAN QUILTS

BLACK AMERICAN QUILTS

Head to the southern U.S. states where quilters continue to improvise sewn patterns passed down for generations, from the times of slavery and the Underground Railroad.  Make critical connections to historic crops like cotton and indigo, and 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!
