Lady in the Blue Hat

Lady in the Blue Hat by Jocelyn Carter

The featured quilt of the week in the March 28, 2010 edition of Start Your Week with a Quilt newsletter is called Lady in the Blue Hat, and it was created by Jocelyn Carter. Jocelyn has done a series of these quilts, and I always think of them during the holy season.

In the African American church, in addition to everything holy, Easter means getting dressed up in your finest. Invariably, nothing already in the closet is fine enough, so most people buy new outfits for Easter Sunday. Jocelyn’s lady sure did! When she struts into church Sunday, she plans to turn heads — just as Jocelyn’s beautiful quilt does.
