Stitchin' and Pullin'
A Gee's Bend QuiltBook - 2008
MOTHER AND DAUGHTER, grandmother and granddaughter, aunt and niece, friend and friend. For a hundred years, generations of women from Gee's Bend have quilted together, sharing stories, trading recipes, singing hymns--all the while stitchin' and pullin' thread through cloth. Every day Baby Girl listens, watches, and waits, until she's called to sit at the quilting frame. Piece by piece, she puzzles her quilt together--telling not just her story, but the story of her family, the story of Gee's Bend, and the story of her ancestors' struggle for freedom. From the Hardcover edition.
