Clara Ford

Clara Ford was the mother of six children: Allen, Ray, Matthew, Emma, Evora and Ruth. Her legacy lives on through her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and her quilts. Eight of her quilts remain, stored in treasured status, ready to inspire future generations. These quilts will be available for viewing at the 2012 Atlanta Arts Festival which opens at noon July 29, 2012 at the South Fulton Arts Center, 4645 Butner Road, College Park, GA.

Shown above is a quilt that honors Clara. It was  made by O.V. Brantley, her granddaughter. The quilt is called Clara’s Scrap Bag.
