I started collecting quilts 35 years ago. When I started to identify the difference in the construction and the aesthetic decisions in the African American communities and the rather constricted repetitive patterned quilts I naturally gravitated to the abstractness of the African American quilts. They reminded me of great abstract paintings. From then on I focused my attention on these quilts. I would take road trips every couple of weeks to the southern states which is where I would find these wonderful abstract quilts. I would get so excited when I would find one. I just couldn't wait to get it home to examine it thoroughly.
There are many more in the collection than are shown on my home page. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I have.
