Stitchin' and Pullin': A Gee's Bend Quilt


Member Price

Stitchin' and Pullin': A Gee's Bend Quilt talks about the women of Gee’s Bend who for generations have made quilts to keep a family warm, as a pastime accompanied by sharing and singing, or to memorialize loved ones. Today, the same quilts hang on museum walls as modern masterpieces of color and design.

Inspired by these quilts and the women who made them, award-winning author Patricia C. McKissack traveled to Alabama to learn their stories. The lyrical rite-of-passage narrative that is the result of her journey seamlessly weaves together the familial, cultural, spiritual, and historical strands of life in this community.
