Research

Research and Inspiration. Lucia made a trip to our local library looking for some inspiration for her new hobby, quilting. She had reserved six books online but then came home with 18. The Quilts of Gee’s Bend book is really interesting — it documents the stunning quilts of Gee’s Bend, Alabama and the lives of many of their makers, most of whom are descendants of slaves.

  1. I stumbled upon your blog from your grass pollen tag (I, like your daughter, have itchy spring/summer eyes). I noticed the post on Gee’s Bend and wanted to agree that it is such an inspirational book. Those women made it happen for themselves.
