Happy Birthday Clara!

Stars in My Heaven, 83 x 97 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2008.

Today is my grandmother Clara Ford’s birthday.  We called her Big Mama. She lived and quilted in Crossett, Arkansas from 1892 until 1966. Eight of her quilts survived her, and her spirit lives on through the Clara Ford Foundation.

Happy birthday, Big Mama!

  1. I’d like to add my own wishes as well, O.V. Honoring our ancestors is what keeps them from being forgotten. I’m sure your grandmother is extremely proud of your commitment to keep the craft and her memory alive. Janice
