Quilt Personal Quilting History

CustomsF131
In the 1990’s Carolyn O’Bagy Davis (a 4th generation quilter from Tucson, Arizona) went to Hopi 2nd Mesa in Arizona and worked with the Hopis on quilts. More than 135 Hopi quilters were involved. Carolyn had a major exhibition of Hopi quilts, “Quilting from the Hopi Mesas: Stitched Traditions from an Ancient Community” at the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff, Arizona. Also a book was published, Hopi Quilting Stitched Traditions from an Ancient Community, 1997. Many Hopi quilts are sold for a much needed source of income for the Hopi community.
