QUILTS



These beautiful quilts are so amazing! One of my craft goals for 2011 is to make a bed quilt. My mum is a prolific quilter and I have tried on numerous occasions to follow in her footsteps but I have never completed a project, although I have started SO many. Maybe this year!

  1. I love them! This kind of quilts are called quilt of G-bend. It started by African American during the American Civil War. They are the quilts I want to make - The quilt on your bed is also quilt of G-bend...

  5. There is a beautiful book on the quilts of Gee's Bend:

    Quilts are amazing works of art - crazy quilts are my favorite - I have a double wedding pattern quilt made by my great grandmother on my bed. I love it so much - it is made from clothing scraps from my grandma, her brother, etc.
