OriginEdit

Harriet Powers was an African-American slave, folk artist, and quilt maker from rural Georgia. She used traditional appliqué techniques to record local legends, Bible stories, and astronomical events on her quilts. Only two of her quilts have survived: Bible Quilt 1886 and Pictorial Quilt 1898. Although records of a third, the Lord’s Supper Quilt, were found in 2009, its location has not been located. However, the Warehouse for sure has one of her undocumented quilts, titled Heavenly Quilt, which incorporates themes found in both her Bible and Pictorial quilts

EffectsEdit

The quilt has many figures and scenes sewn into the fabric. When touched, these figures will animate and move around and eventually off of the quilt. They will then act out the story the static quilt portrays or create something original to comfort the user. When used by someone unjust or immoral, all the celestial spheres will start to glow and emit sunlight that will blind and burn the user.
