Dorothy Montgomery, SC Quilter

Charleston, South Carolina's Times & Democrat newspaper recently published a feature article on Dorothy Montgomery, retired music teacher and quilter. She has more than twenty (20) quilts featuring African American musical stories on display at the Orangeburg County Fine Arts Center's Lusty Gallery through March 9. Miss Montgomery will speak at a Meet-the-Artist reception on Feb. 1 from 6 - 8 pm. The exhibit is free.

Miss Montgomery wrote A Legacy of Twelve: Notes from a Musical Scale Create Many Styles. She has stitched more than 40 quilts since starting to quilt in 2001. You can see more of her quilts on her website I wish I could see her quilts in person!
