 Gee’s Bend: Get Ready: A Quilt Print Jigsaw Puzzle: 1,000 Pieces: Jigsaw Puzzles for Adults

A magnificent 1000-piece puzzle featuring a colorful, intricately patterned quilt by artist Mary Lee Bendolph. She is the matriarch of the historic quilting community in Gee’s Bend, Alabama, and is published by Paulson Fontaine Press in Berkeley, California.

This is the first jigsaw puzzle to feature a print of one of the fabled Gee’s Bend quilts. They are practical works of art created by the descendants of formerly enslaved people who settled in the Alabama community of Gee’s Bend. The quilters developed a distinctive geometric aesthetic that results in quilts looking much like abstract expressionist paintings. All the while retaining the hominess, comfort, and country flavor of the traditional quilt. The inventive patterns of these quilts and the stories about their makers have enthralled a wide audience. Contemporary art lovers, quilters, folk art enthusiasts, and American history buffs will love Gee’s Bend: Get Ready: A Quilt Print Jigsaw Puzzle.
