Harriet Powers Revisited


Happy Monday!

Well I received some input about the Harriet Powers post last week and thought I would share them today.

Sue highly recommends these books about Harriet Powers and her quilts:

And a children's book for ages 8-11:

Louise shared a stereograph from 1895.  The quilt was featured in the Negro Building at the Atlanta Exposition that year.

The Inter Ocean newspaper in Chicago, featured some images from the Bible Quilt in December of 1895.  Part of the headline was "Sight at Atlanta Show.  A Unique Quilt by an Illiterate Mammy.  Shows the Garden of Eden and a Good Part of its Diversified Population."

Thanks Sue and Louise!

Have a safe and happy day!
