The inspiring story of a group of women carrying on the tradition of their ancestors, creating striking quilt designs meant to provide warmth, teach history, and strengthen community. The book includes large photographs of their work and a simple instruction page so that readers can try piecing their own quilt blocks. Pair this nonfiction book with the picture book "Stitchin' and Pullin': a Gee's Bend quilt" by Pat McKissack.
