More Gee

Still in love with this book The Quilts of Gee Bend's.

The stories of the women who made the quilts are just tremendous. So intriguing.

It has inspired me so much to forgetting about rules- cotton this cotton that, square this square that, and anything heavily quilted or pieced.

Those color combinations are fabulous.

Simple but gorgeous.

I really want to get my hands on this book! It is so inspiring and I really like the color combo in those two quilts.

I love this book too. I've been wanting to do some mini quilts. I should go check it out from the library again!

African American quilters really inspire me. The extreme and tight quilts that are most common now don't appeal to me. For me, the African american quilts have interesting flow and movement. Their creation seems natural and
spontanious.
