I'm reading Angela Walter's book, too, and it already inspired me.
I have a Gee's Bend quilt kit waiting for me to have a moment when I'm not working on another quilt! I've done a little research on the women but good to see a recommended book on them.Angela's book has changed my quilting live already. I can't recommend it enough.
Thanks so much for leaving a comment! I try to respond but life sometimes gets in the way. If you have any questions please email me at kateeconklin(at)gmail(dot)com
