Several African American quilters exhibited their quilts at the bi-annual East Cobb Quilt Show which closed today. Although the show is known to place a heavy emphasis on traditional  quilts, the show is open to all genres of quilts.  It is a juried and judged show.

One of the most striking quilts in the show which  featured approximately 400 quilts was Heritage by Albertha Brown of Douglasville, GA.  It earned a ribbon in its category.

Other African American quilters with quilts in the show included Maxine Moore, Jeanette Walton and O.V. Brantley.

Congratulations to each of these ladies for sharing their unique perspective on quilting with others.
