Georgia Quilt Documentation Project

The Georgia Quilt Documentation project is almost complete. The book that flows from this important work of documenting Georgia quilts will be published in 2006.

I am proud and excited that one of my quilts will be included in this important work. Atlanta Album (This Ain’t Baltimore!) will be featured as an example of modern African American quilting. The quilt is an appliqué quilt depicting flowers in vases using African fabrics. The title is a tongue-in-cheek jab at the fact that, although I love admiring Baltimore album quilts, I knew I would never make one. Atlanta Album (This Ain’t Baltimore!) is my adaptation.

Hopefully, 100 years from now Atlanta Album (This Ain’t Baltimore!) will still inspire the joy in others that it inspired in me as I made it.
