Gees Bend Quilt

Circa 1930, variation of housetop pattern, concentric squares pieced from cotton, wool and rayon. Back side lined with flour sacks, entire quilt hand stitched. One of the treasures from the group of women quilters in Gees Bend, Alabama.

The A can stand for Alabama or Art or Art is from Alabama.
