Posted in: Blog- Nov 11, 2011 Comments Off

Remarkable works of art, from a tradition that dates back four generations, are made by women who live in a rural African, American Alabama community. The goal was to improvise with established designs to create a unique composition. Materials such as old clothes, cornmeal sacks, denim jeans and fabrics that fit the color palette were used. This book honors the unnamed women who  made these unusual and stunning quilts. The Quilts of Gee’s Bend, vol. 2 is a flexagon, H- 3.5″ x W-8.5″ x D-8.5″. inkjet  printed on Epson paper.  Edition 25.
