Unveiling of the Harlem Quilt ... Yesterday

Community Works at the Dwyer Cultural Center 
&  The City College of New York

Unveiling of the Harlem Quilt 

created by the students of 
"Quilt Making in American History" 
at The City College of New York

Dr. Myrah Brown Green, Executive Director of Arts & Culture at City College, teaches the class and they created this for CCNY's Great Hall.  These students are first time quilters and created this by hand.  They were paired off and had to create a panel with certain elements.  The chose images from the Harlem Is... exhibit and had it screen printed by Harlem Textiles, as well as the Dwyer fabric.  They have also created patchwork quilts for the premies in Harlem Hospital.  These pics were taken with my phone.
