I just heard of the passing of Cuesta Benberry
Quilt Treasures describes her in a wonderful way
Cuesta Benberry has engaged in the study and research of quilt history for nearly fifty years. Her research areas have included myriad quilt history subjects; and many of her seminal studies have encouraged later researchers to investigate those topics further. Since 1975, her investigations have been primarily conducted on African-American quilt history. She has published numerous quilt history essays and research papers, served as a quilt research and history editor, as a consultant for quilt exhibitions and for authors, and has lectured widely in the United States and abroad.
I urge you to watch the wonderful interview and documentary presented by Quilt Treasures
