Gees Bend Quilters
This is a picture I made earlier for The Museum of Alabama. It will be the last picture you see in the permanent collection. Pictured are three famous Gee's Bend Quilters. Louisiana Bendolph, her mother Rita Mae (Rabbit), and her Mother-in-law Mary Lee Bendolph. this link will take you to a short oral history: http://soulsgrowndeep.org/arti... "We think of inheriting as land or something, not things that people teach you. We came from cotton fields, we came through hard times, and we look back and see what all these people before us have done. They brought us here and to say thank you is not enough." -Louisiana P. Bendolph, Gees Bend quilter, 2006
