Improvisational Quilt - Paine Art Center and Gardens


This dynamic quilt, shown at the Paine in 2007, was created by Mary Lee Bendolph, perhaps the most notable artist among the celebrated Gee’s Bend quilters of rural Alabama. Mary Lee created “Strips and Strings” (2003) by improvising as she worked with the various shapes and colors of fabric.
