  24. 24. Marion Coleman: Story Quilts
  25. 25. Memory, family stories, cultural history, and a world filled with color are the inspiration for Marion Coleman’s quilts. Mr. Felix Lindsey was a buffalo soldier from Wichita Falls.
  26. 26. Marion learned to sew from her grandmother. Her journey as an art quilter began ten years ago when she entered a quilting contest. She has won numerous awards and art residencies. Her quilts have been featured in several publications including O, Oprah Magazine, and SchoolArts.
  27. 27. Marion Coleman lived with her grandmother most of her childhood. She feels lucky to have stayed there; her grandmother taught her to quilt. Her teachers encouraged her to go to college. She was the first in her family to graduate from a university. Here is a quilt of Pearl, her stepmother.
  28. 28. Her quilts are amazing. At first glance, they appear to be paintings. Here is Faith Ringgold, famous artist and author of Tar Beach and other children’s picture books.
  29. 29. Notice the texture in the background on this quilt of DeeDee Bridgewater, actress and jazz singer.
  30. 30. It is hard to believe this is a quilt. It depicts Shelagh, a long time friend. Can you see all the stitched lines and pieces of fabric?
  31. 31. Marion Coleman’s grandmother and aunt.
  32. 32. Quilt of a boy with a skateboard.
  33. 33. Marion Coleman loves to use cultural themes in her quilts. Here is a quilt honoring Ruby Bridges, the first black child to attend an all white elementary school in the south.
  34. 34. This quilt features Bessie Coleman, first Black female to get her pilot’s license.
  35. 35. This quilt is titled Waiting for the Freedom Train. Can you see the eyes in the background? What could those mean?
