Los Angeles Women: A Record of Experience Community Quilt

 
In the fall of 2006, the Studio for Southern California History issued a call to local quilters asking them to donate a 12" X 12" quilt block that honored a woman who is important to local history in order to create a community quilt for the 2007 exhibit Los Angeles Women: A Record of Experience. In addition to using a common color or fabric, blocks needed to have a title, description of who it was honoring, and be turned in by late 2006 to be included in the exhibit. This community quilt has developed beyond its initial installation.
