American Comfort Quilt

American Comfort quilt

Ever since I first saw the quilts of Gee’s Bend at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, I’ve been paying attention to this craft, particularly when I come across contemporary riffs on tradition. Citizen:Citizen is an especially crass example, recalling quilts made of flour sacks and other repurposed materials, but with an “ironic” $4900 price tag.
