East Cobb Quilt Show Opens June 6th

Stop Disappearing. Show Up and Speak Up!, 66 X 75 inch red and white disappearing nine patch quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2022. Machine quilted by Maxine Moore. NFS.

My quilt Stop Disappearing. Show Up and Speak Up! was juried into Georgia Celebrates Quilts, the East Cobb Quilt Show. The bi-annual quilt show will be held June 6 -8 at the Cobb County Civic Center in Marietta, GA.

Stop Disappearing. Show Up and Speak Up! was part of my Long Time Coming — A Retrospective of O.V. Brantley’s Red and White Quilts exhibit that premiered at the Emma Darnell Aviation Museum and Conference Center in 2022 and at the 2023 International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX. Although the quilt is created using a traditional disappearing nine patch block, it is my version of a social justice quilt with a message. VOTE! That message is communicated with “vote” charms sewn throughout the quilt.

The East Cobb Quilt Show will feature over 300 quilts created by Georgia quilt artists. It is worthy of your time. See you there! Meanwhile, early voting is underway in Georgia. VOTE!
