In the Quilting Tradition is intended to tell a story with emphasis upon several factors; respect for the elders, love for the family members and love/concern for one’s fellowman. In addition, it is a story about the interaction between a young man and his grandmother as she tells him about the tradition of quilting from an African perspective.



Kyrie was visiting his grandmother. He loved his grandmother so much. She told such wonderful stories. Kyrie thought his grandmother was the smartest person he knew. Today, his grandmother was quilting. “Grandma,” he said, “what are you doing?” “ I’m quilting,” his grandmother replied. “What’s quilting? he asked. His grandmother sighed, moved her quilting to the side, and pulled Kyrie onto her lap. “Quilting,” she began, “grows out of an old African tradition. A quilt is a collection of cloths made of more than one layer. The cloths, with the middle layer being made of something warm, are sewn together.”
