“Tapestries of A Legacy”

Quilts by the African American Quilt Circle

The African American Quilt Circle (AAQC) was founded in Durham, NC, in 1998 with the purpose of preserving the heritage of quilting in the African American community. Twenty years later, the AAQC has grown into an arts group with over 60 members of quilters and quilt aficionados who live in the Triangle and surrounding areas.
