Happy Founders Day to My Sorors of Delta Sigma Theta

A Bouquet in Red and White, 24 x 24 inch red and white quilt, by O.V. Brantley, 2010.

What makes every artist different are their life experiences that influence their work. Most art bubbles up from the soul. One of the things in my life that has left an indelible mark on my soul and influenced my quilt choices is my sorority Delta Sigma Theta.

Once you become a Delta, you love all things red and white. So while some quilters have made red and white quilts throughout history because they are beautiful, I have an added reason. Red and white are the colors of my sorority.

I am working on a book of red and white quilts which I hope to finish this year. (Wish me luck!) I hope the book will be a lasting legacy to my Delta Sigma Theta legacy daughter India who is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta.

Meanwhile, thank you Delta Sigma Theta for the added inspiration to my dreams, and Happy 105th Founders Day to my sorors!
