Happy Birthday Delta Sigma Theta!


A Star Among Stars, 78x89 inch hand pieced red and white quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2020. Pattern by Willyne Hammerstein. Machine quilted by Maxine Moore.

My beloved sorority Delta Sigma Theta is 109 years old today! She has been responsible for many of the guiding principles of my life like service, leadership and fortitude since I was initiated as a founding member into the Lambda Theta Chapter at the University of Arkansas in 1974. She has also inspired my red and white quilt collection.

Finding Fortitude, 56x58 inch red and white quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2019. Machine quilted by Maxine Moore.

A new red and white quilt is never far from my imagination. I will share my collection of red and quilts in a solo exhibit opening November 19, 2022 at the Emma Darnell Museum and Conference Center in Atlanta.


I am looking forward to seeing all my sorors of Delta Sigma Theta and everyone who loves quilts.
