My Quilts and Me: The Diary of an American Quilter

Overview

This eagerly awaited book, containing many illustrations and color plates of her quilts, will be the first comprehensive publication of the work of National Heritage Fellow Nora Ezell.

Overview

This eagerly awaited book, containing many illustrations and color plates of her quilts, will be the first comprehensive publication of the work of National Heritage Fellow Nora Ezell. With the artist as diarist, it defines a new genre, not only for quilting and folklife books, but also for African American history books.

My Quilts and Me is an intensely personal account of an artist's thoughts as she works on her much sought-after pictorial quilts, as she puts together challenging patchwork patterns, and as she struggles to find the best ways of marketing her work.

With an eye toward setting a fair price for her work, Mrs. Ezell carefully records the time she spends on each quilt: for her Tribune to the Civil Righters of Alabama quilt, she spent 414 hours and 30 minutes piercing, 121 hours and 55 minutes quilting, 14 hours and 30 minutes to hem and finish, for a total of 580 hours and 55 minutes. There are $107.54 worth of materials in the quilt, which now hangs in the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Not all of Mrs. Ezell's reminiscences are about quilts, however: she also talks about her faith, her family, her politics, and baseball.
