For generations, the women of Gee’s Bend have made  quilts to keep a family warm, as a pastime accompanied by sharing and  singing, or to memorialize loved ones. Today, some of the same quilts hang on our 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. Told through a collection of poems, this is the story of the quilt-making  community in Gee’s Bend, Alabama.
