Gee's Bend Quilts

Every year the employees of the Stitchin' Post have a challenge. This year they were challenged to use their own interpretation of the Gee's Bend "style".

Below are a few quilts from Gee's Bend, Alabama.
I haven't really decided if I have an opinion about them or not. Oh, heck, I have an opinion and I'll keep it myself.;)


  1. Thanks for posting the pictures. I'm not sure I could make one in this style. It's not me and I wouldn't know where to begin! I can certainly appreciate the workmanship, though. Different cultures certainly carry over into whatever type art we do and surround ourselves with, don't they?

  2. Our opinions might be the same.

  3. What a great display! Even though they aren't my style, I love the Gee's Bend quilts!

  4. I bet your opinion matches mine!

  5. I still enjoy seeing the quilts and I did see some Gees bend quilts here in Australia. They were mostly the newer ones from the co-op that were for sale.

  6. I have one of those opinions best kept to myself too ha.

  7. wow, so many great one son this post! the last one really catches my fancy!
