In the rural community of Gee's Bend, Alabama, African American women have been making quilts for generations. They use scraps of old overalls, aprons, bleached cornmeal sacks – anything they can find. Their traditions have been passed down through the decades.
Much to the women's surprise, a selection of the quilts was featured in an exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, in 2002. The exhibition then travelled to the Whitney Museum in New York.
In this look at the close-knit community of Gee's Bend, Susan Goldman Rubin explores the history and culture of an amazing group of women and their unique quilting traditions. A map, directions on how to make a quilt square, endnotes and an index round out the book.$29.99
