Gee's Bend Quilt Scarf

The brilliant design on our scarf recreates Housetop and Bricklayer with Bars (ca. 1955), a pattern by Gee's Bend quilter Lucy T. Pettway (American, 1921–2004). This exceptional textile is the only Gee's Bend quilt in the Museum's holdings that appears to be intentionally pictorial; Pettway realized an imaginary aerial view of the old Pettway plantation, formerly belonging to Joseph Gee.
