Here are some images I took at the Gee's Bend exhibition:
If you are unfamiliar with the Gee's Bend quilts and the history of quiltmaking by these women, I encourage you to find a copy of the exhibition catalog. The beauty of these quilts, especially because of their utilitarian function, is simply gorgeous. Be sure to follow the quiltmaking link, above, and scroll down to see the short video of the women as they sing and work on a quilt. I hope to visit someday.
As an interesting comparison, please take a look at the wonderful photos taken by Luana Rubin, of equilter.com, to see many of the juried quilts of QuiltCon.
