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.

Complicated Christmas Star

Life gets complicated right about now. Family on the way. House not clean. Christmas cards not mailed. Tree not up. Only two weeks left to get everything done!

Don’t panic. Breathe deeply and try to enjoy the journey.

O.V. Brantley

Complicated Christmas Star is a traditional quilt with a twist. The pattern is called labyrinth. The beautiful longarm quilting in a holly leaf pattern with variegated thread was done by Maxine Moore.
