Gee's Bend Broken Dish Quilt
Iconic heirloom quilt designed and hand-sewn in Boykin, Alabama. Handcrafted 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.
K & K Quilted Treasures quilts are made by Doris Pettway Hacketts, born into the legendary African American quilting tradition of rural Gee’s Bend, Alabama (now known as Boyin). Currently a resident of Jackson, Alabama, Hacketts was one of thirteen children who worked in cotton fields before leaving for college. She began quilting with her mother out of necessity, and found herself inspired by the colors and handmade process, which she describes as therapeutic. Each of her quilts represents her unique personality and experiences—no two are alike.
