African Starry Night Receives Accolades from Library

African Starry Night recently returned home after being on exhibit during Black History Month at the Doraville Library in Dekalb County. I exhibit my quilts for the same reason I give so many of them away. I just love sharing my quilts. Howver, receiving the following letter about African Starry Night has only increased my resolve to share my quilts:

“Dear Ms. Brantley,

The Doraville Library was among those fortunate libraries chosen to display one of the Brown Sugar Stitchers Guild quilts during the month of February. We exhibited African Starry Night much to the delight of our patrons and staff. The deep, rich colors were gorgeous to look at and the playful patter exhilirating. So many stopped to gaze at it and thanked us for exhibiting such a beautiful creation.

We were thrilled to be chosen as a display site. Libraries are meant to inspire and elevate. Sharing this beautiful quilt with our patrons helped us do just that.

Thank you, Ms. Cauthen. You made my day.
