The Quilts of Gee’s Bend

a few years ago at the philadelphia museum, i viewed an amazing installation of the quilts of gee’s bend. i was reminded of them again last month at the national museum of african american history and culture.

although…at five figures each…i’ll plan to have one in my next lifetime.

cultural chic!
