    Come see and learn about extraordinary quilts by Sandy Barrett Hassan! Hassan greets the day early, sometimes at 4 AM, eager to be among her quilting fabrics and patterns and colors—the bolder and more ebullient the colors, the better. What began for this native Washingtonian as gift-making for friends in the 1970s, has now blossomed into a serious art form. Her quilts are exhibited in museums, featured in books, and are currently for sale in the gift shop of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. The District of Columbia Historian commissioned Sandy to create a quilt celebrating the District’s Bicentennial. A former member of the African Heritage Dancers and Drummer troupe, Hassan no longer dances in the traditional sense of the word. Instead, she says, “My quilts do the dancing for me.”
