Roy Mitchell Jr. - Photo Q.S.O.S.
Mitchell, a collector of African American memorabilia, is pictured here with his Watermelun Babies quilt he stitched.
In 2008, the Quilt Alliance's Save Our Stories project interviewed him. It's a fascinating read - including how his father and teenage son now also quilt!
Mitchell teaches a popular course in quiltmaking at the Culpeper (VA) Juvenile Correctional Center - and ensures another generation learns the joy of quilting! Enjoy!
