Quilt Me a Story

Quilt Me A Story by Aleathia Chisolm

The featured quilt of the week in the February 28, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter continues our celebration of Black History Month. The quilt is called Quilt Me a Story and it was created by Aleathia Chisolm.

One of the things that is universally loved about quilt is that quilts tell a story. Sometimes the story is in the fabric, and sometimes it is in the design.

Quilt Me a Story was featured in one of the early quilt shows sponsored by the Brown Sugar Stitchers. Aleathia took a simple concept of reading a bedtime story and captured the essence of quilting.
 
The next time you look at a quilt, see if you can “read” the story the quilter is trying to tell. There is nothing like a good story!
