African American Quilters of Baltimore

Volumes 1 & 2

The African American Quilters of Baltimore was founded in 1989 with the primary goal to offer support and information to African American quilters in an environment of acceptance and welcome. Many "quilt sisters" have participated in our program over the years. In 2018, book artist Suzanne Coley wanted to honor the members by inviting them to submit a mini-quilt top that represented their aesthetic, style or favorite quilting technique.  

Suzanne received 37 quilt tops and transformed these quilt tops into book pages. On the left side of each quilt, Suzanne hand silkscreened the name of the maker of the quilt. Our youngest member, Jasaiya Keyes made the video. Many thanks to all the hands that contributed to this project.
