Extraordinary women and Bend over and I’ll show you sweater! While the exhibit and published catalog of their quilts were a big hit, it sounds like the quilts were not returned to at least two of the women or were sold without them receiving compensation. If this is what happened, it’s not surprising, but it is extremely troubling. Those are beautiful quilts. I was just recently thinking of my mother and other women getting together to quilt. I loved it when they came together to quilt or can and preserve food for the winter.

Best Bend over and I’ll show you sweater
I liked to listen to their conversations and Bend over and I’ll show you sweater. My family did not make art quilts, but they kept us very warm on cold winter nights. Good heavens, the amount of work those women used to do to keep their families clothed, warm and fed. I have always found it amusing to hear people talk about fan and eyelash fluttering Southern belles; the Southern women of my childhood worked from sunup to sundown and didn’t do a lot of fluttering, and those were the “belles” I knew. If I ever get back to my home state, I would love to visit the belles of Gee’s Bend. I visited gees bend about a decade ago- the stories and the love/anguish behind these quilts is palpable.
