One week from today, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is opening an exhibition of the Gee’s Bend Quilts! Gee’s Bend is a small, poor town in Alabama that has become widely-known for its quilting. The quilts of Gee’s Bend take a different angle on normal quilting techniques, and they are just amazing. If you are near Philadelphia you should definitely go look at these quilts (there are 74 of them!) before the exhibition ends in December. It’s $14 to get in to the museum, unless you go on Sunday, when it’s pay what you want all day!
Check out more pictures of the quilts here.

I’ve been working with the quilters for over five years producing rugs based on the quilts. I’m having a moving sale, and my Gee’s Bend Quilt Collection rugs are all 75% off. Prices start at $99. Please see the rugs at http://www.classicrug.com and call me at 888-334-0063 to check on availability. The quilters get a royalty on every rug that I sell.
