Gee's Bend: Equal Justice, A Quilt Print Jigsaw PuzzleRegular price $ 19.99
An extraordinary 750-piece puzzle that portrays an intricate, geometric-patterned quilt in mesmerizing shades of teal, lavender, pink, and royal blue stitched by Essie Bendolph Pettway, a member of the historic Gee’s Bend quilting community, and published by Paulson Fontaine Press in Berkeley, California.
Michal Kimmelman of the New York Times described the quilts from Gee’s Bend as “some of the most miraculous works of modern art America has produced.” The Gee’s Bend community has a history of quilting that goes back to its formerly enslaved ancestors. The quilts, originally intended for comfort and household use, are celebrated for their bold abstract patterns and dramatic colorways. This 20 x 26-inch puzzle, featuring a quilt pieced together in glowing shades of royal blue, lavender, pink, and teal, is a superb example of this tradition. As you assemble it you will see a work of art come together under your hands.
