Quilts of Gee's Bend

Gee's Bend is a community on the curve of the river Alabama River, and home of a historical quilting bee. Over six generations, the women of the bee have produced quilts that combine elements of Amish, traditional American and African influences, and often utilise fabric scraps and cast-offs to beautifully wonky effect.  Man, I would love to attend one of their workshops. This right here is why I love quilts and quilting. HF.
