Gee's Bend Bookshelf Cotton Quilt
Iconic heirloom quilted wall hanging designed and hand-sewn in Boykin, Alabama. Handcrafted in 2021 following the Gee’s Bend quilting tradition that goes back three generations of Black women artists.
Hand sewn using cotton fabric. Preserve your quilt for generations to come by washing on a gentle cycle or hand washing it in cold water using a mild detergent.
Nook and Shug quilts are handmade by mother-daughter duo Cassandra Ann Pettway and her daughter Rachael Pettway, both members of the rich Gee’s Bend (now known as Boykin), Alabama African American quilting tradition, dating back to the 1920s. Quilting is a family legacy for Cassandra, who learned from her mother and grandmother and shared the tradition Rachael, who she credits for inspiring unique color combinations and patterns. The generations of Pettways come together to preserve the craft and creativity of quilting, and make an effort to keep the local quilting community alive.
