Quilt no 30


untitled
25x25"
The last few weeks I have been reading about the women from Gee's Bend, Alabama and their quilting style. They have a bold, and sophisticated quilting style based on traditional American (and African American) quilts, but with a geometric simplicity reminiscent of Amish quilts and modern art.
