Gee's Bend

While perusing the latest Pottery Barn Catalog last night I came across something very interesting: they have recreated the Gee's Bend Quilts.  I really don't know what to feel about this.  On one hand, it is nice to see how they have become important enough to be taken main stream.  But, I also feel that the meaning behind the quilts is lost when they are recreated in mass quantities.

How do you feel about it?

    of the woman quilting an already finished quilt makes me laugh at how staged and misleading it is. I have lots to say on this topic but not a lot of time to type. I wonder who actually made these queen size quilts that sell for only $299. does anyone know?
