Our mini journey to the museum
also included veiwing these awesome
quilts made from free slaves.
These textile beauties are reproductions recollecting
the diversity of quilting traditions
that were found within African-American communities.
Lots of hand quilting in this one.
Although you cannot read the redwork on this beauty;
it told of the families journey.
Slaves passed their history through songs before they were free.
Not too shabby for reproductions.
The real McCoy.
This one was protected under glass.
Can you say LOVE LOVE LOVE!
I wanted to take them all home.
Quilting Blessings to All!
