Gee's Bend Quilt Kits and Fabrics


Can I just say, "Yes, please."

I have blogged before of my love for the quilts of Gee's Bend and someday I will make one for myself. Someday.

Hello! I met the Gee's Bend ladies at Sisters Oregon last July. I have some wonderful memories of them. They sing beautifully and the quilts in person were amazing. I had seen the show at the DeYoung Museum in Sf and that was great too. Looks like we get to make a quilt quite easily by the looks of the kits. Hope they make a bundle on the proceeds! Happy Holidays! Pam in Chico

I bought the Lay Gal quilt kit. Have had so much fun with it. However, the cutting instructions were given wrong. I didn't find this out until I went looking for some backing fabric. I just made some changes and there was sufficent fabric to do this. I love the colors. The picture does not do this quilt justice. It has gone together really quickly too. Would love to make some of the others now.
