The Quilts of Gee's Bend

The Quilts of Gee's Bend


The quiltmakers were surprised! Why would people be interested in their quilts? Here is a beautiful site that weaves art into the history of a small, almost-forgotten town in Alabama. Teachers will find images of the beautiful quilts, a history of the town, photographs of Gee's Bend during the Depression, and an excellent review of quilts as visual traditions. This is great content to support many state standards involving art that reflects life.
