Rural African-American Geometric Quilt Top
Gee's Bend-style quilt, made by rural African-American sharecropper family. Contains generational fabric. 100% cotton. Hand-pieced quilt top. This original and very expressively wild and somewhat abstract pattern could be called "jazz." Irregular joining of patch pieces creates unusual juxtaposition of crazy patterns within a geometrical pattern. Threadbare clothing scraps used in original construction of top. Learn More

Japanese-American Applique Floral Quilt
Striking appliqued quilt with pansy design. Japanese cotton fabric backing. New outer binding to match original green in quilt top. Charming example of 30's era quilt design from Japanese happy-coat-style patterns and classic popular American chintz. Hand-embroidered black cotton floss chain stitching surrounding and anchoring appliqued patterns is always dynamic and defines the complex and beautifully joined pansy flower parts. This is one of my very favorites. Learn More
