Gee's Bend

How blessed we are in Sisters to have so many wonderful quilters visit us during the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.  This year our 40th Anniversary will be an exceptional celebration!  One of the many highlights is the Ruby Celebration by Maywood Studios!  It will be an evening of music celebrated with the Gee'sBend Quilters!!!  The Gee's Bend Quilters are from Gee's Bend Alabama and have shared with the world, the time honor use of fabric...and yet, it seems  as you view their quilts you might think they were at the cutting edge of the Modern Quilt movement.  As with all things in life...quilting is also one big circle of life.

Here is a peek of the amazing use of color, value and design of their quilts.  You will want to sign up for the Ruby Celebration!
