The Influence of a Good Book: Gee’s Bend

Not long ago, I reopened Gee’s Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt given to us by our friend Emily at this book shower in 2008.  The full-page full-color images are gorgeous and the writing is both a history of the place over several decades and a bit of art criticism – the good kind of academic in tone.  It wasn’t long before this (left) turned into this (below).

Fabrics in this stack include Sweetwater Sunkissed, Alexander Henry Anja, Michael Miller Etta, Melody Miller Ruby Star Rising, Rosemarie Lavin Spa, Joel Dewberry Modern Meadow, and several others that I’m not able to name.  If you recognize something I’ve missed, please leave a comment.  More on this little project to come.
