My daughter's one room schoolhouse (yes, one room, no I don't live in a little house on the prairie) just did a study on slavery and part of that included an author's study of Faith Ringgold - http://www.faithringgold.com/ . In honor of her work the students created a "quilt" incorporating her theme of flying. Each child first designed themselves out of fabric and then on paper, painted a background of where they would fly to. After they affixed themselves to the paper, they added a fabric border. This photo show the completed quilt.
