Mary Lin Elementary Students Learn Quilting

Mary Lin Elementary students display their quilt blocks

The Clara Ford Foundation participated in the Black History Month celebration at the Mary Lin Elementary School in Atlanta. Quilters Marva Swanson, Laura Sorton, Nina Moore and O.V. Brantley shared the art of quilting with 236 elementary school students. 

With the help of the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild, the Clara Ford Foundation prepared a quilt block for each of the students. Each student then finished his/her quilt with an original drawing in the middle of the quilt.

The students and the teachers loved designing  their quilt blocks, and they learned a lot about quilting as well.
