Gee's Bend Quilt

As I walked to get some lunch at work on Monday, I noticed a quilt being set up for display. I knew immediately it had to be a quilt from Gee's Bend. If you don't know about Gee's Bend read more here http://www.quiltsofgeesbend.com/

This quilt was commissioned by AT&T to be made by the quilters of Gee's Bend. It was hard to get a good photo because it was behind glass. It is made from various types of material - I could spot some stretch polyester and cordoruy. It is hand quilted. AT&T is displaying as part of Black History Month.

You can read more about the quilt on this page http://www.att.com/Common/quilts/index.html
