This month’s program was given by Rose Marie Smith and Kay Beach on the quilts of Gee’s Bend. Both ladies made their own version of a Gee’s Bend quilt, shared their thoughts on the process of making each one, and read excerpts from a book about the original quilt makers.
Thank you, Rose Marie and Kay for a great program!
The Show & Tell tonight was wonderful. We had a great variety of quilts and most all of the “Seeing Spots” quilts (or parts of quilts) from those who attended the Carl Hentsch retreat. Thanks to everyone for bringing their quilts to share. What wonderful inspiration to all!
