Quilts of Gee's Bend and Baum Textiles Introduce Quilt Kits

The Quilters of Gee's Bend and Baum Textile Mills announce their collaboration on Quilt kits based on designs by Mary Lee Bendolph, Qunnie Pettway, Rita Mae Pettway and Mary L. Bennett. The four kits and 19 Gee's Bend solid fabrics sold by the yard should hit stores late November/early December. More than a year in the making we are thrilled that this has come to fruition. A percentage of sales will be given (as a royalty) to the four women, the Gee's Bend Quilters Collective and the Gee's Bend Foundation.
