Have You Added to Your Quilt Library Lately?

The number of books focused on African American quilting has exploded in recent years.  Because I grew up in Arkansas, one of my personal favorites is A Piece of My Soul — Quilts By Black Arkansans.

If you are in the market for some inspiration, a how-to book, or just some plain beauty, check out these books about African American quilting. A quilt book also makes an excellent gift for the quilter in your life. Like fabric, quilters never have enough books.


African American Quilts on Display in Little Rock

Quilts by African American Arkansans are on display at the Old State House Museum on Markham Street in Little Rock, Arkansas. The exhibit entitled “A Piece of My Soul” features many of the quilts in the book A Piece of My Soul by Cuesta Benberry. The quilts will be on display until February 2008. Make a point to see the exhibit when you are in Little Rock, Arkansas. The Clinton Library is just down the street so you can make a day trip out of your visit.
