One of the things kids were asked to tell me was this:
"If you could tell your story in a quilt, what kind of cloth would you use?"
Imagine these quilts -- and these kids:
fun, bright prints, that's who I am!
denim from my pairs of jeans
a soft, blue cloth
an orange, sunset color, yellow, and red
pieces of my old dance costumes
silk, because it is fancy and expensive and looks good
cotton because it is simple
cotton because it is warm and comfy and inexpensive
the same kind Ludelphia used to make her quilt
The quilt pictured above was created by Mary Lee Bendolph of Gee's Bend, Alabama. Love!
