Join others Saturday, July 27th from 10 AM- 1 PM at the Alabama Department of Archives and History in Montgomery for a March Quilts session.
2019 marks the beginning of celebrations of Alabama’s Bicentennial, and The March Quilts will spend the year honoring, recognizing and celebrating the state’s unsung heroines: women who have, or are shaping the state’s (and nation’s) future. This year’s March Quilt honors Alabama’s Unsung Heroines and during this session participants are invited hand sew a quilt block in honor of an Alabama heroine.
The March Quilts began in 2015, when Bib & Tucker Sew-Op partnered with UAB’s Department of Art & Art History and the Birmingham Museum of Art to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery marches through open sewing sessions that yielded 461 quilt blocks. Sew-Op members stitched the blocks together and made three quilts which hung at the Selma Public Library and the Alabama Department of Archives in Montgomery during the anniversary.
We provide all sewing materials and this session is free and open to the public.
