Our friend Patricia Bruvry is included in this exhibition of quilted work at the SF Public Library.
Following the North Star: African American Quilts - Ten contemporary handmade quilts in the tradition of Underground Railroad quilts that show how certain quilt designs and colors gave coded messages to slaves running north to freedom. Quilt block patterns such as “Wagon Wheel,” “Log Cabin” and others will be explained. The quilts were made by City College Quilters, a multi-ethnic group of women that are enrolled in quilting class at City College of San Francisco.
