New Gee's Bend Book

Tuesday, May 30, 2006

I noticed today when I was looking for a book on Amazon that Tinwood is publishing a new book about Gee's Bend quilts, "Gee's Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt" - it can be preordered here. It's due to be released November 28, 2006.

It almost looks as though these Gee's Bend books are becoming more and more valuable - I have "The Quilts of Gee's Bend", and even used, it is being sold on Amazon for $90. "Gee's Bend: The Women and their Quilts" is being sold for $275 on Amazon (and $289 on Alibris, even)!

...the AP has a story here about the quilt exhibit, which is currently at the High in Atlanta. Also: Auburn has a site with some pics from the Freedom Quilting Bee Festival in 1966 here and many more quilt pics with some short commentaries here; a Gee's Bend Quilt is Alabama's 'Official' Quilt - and the state site has instructions on how to make it; and the Wideman/Davis Dance Group does performances about the lives of the quilters, called "The Bends of Life…Surviving, Sewing, Standing" - it was just performed in Demopolis earlier this month (wish I would have known! That would have been great!).
