New Orleans Museum of Art

"Quilting is an activity that can be done individually or together, or independently in a group. In Gee’s Bend, Alabama, friends and family members from four generations have worked side by side to create fabric quilts that are celebrated for their bold designs. Their handmade quilts have made their community well-known and provide the inspiration for this activity.” Create your own quilt square in fun and colorful activity.
