So I missed out on all the joy that is to be found in a NYC beautiful spring weekend (the cherry trees are in bloom!) but at least I made it up to the Bronx on Friday to see an exhibit of Gee's Bend quilts before I was so cruelly laid low.
It's been some time since I've seen a GB quilt in the flesh (so to speak). This was a small show—only 14 quilts, but had some real beauties in it. I was struck, yet again, by how some of the most beautiful quilts can be constructed of the most dubious materials. One of my favorites was this one with the pink center. It's made of what have to be mostly polyester corduroys. But that mix of color is somehow just right.
