In 1966, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. visited the Gee’s Bend Community in rural Alabama, and the Freedom Quilting Bee was established. The bold patterns and bright colors of these now famous quilts, made using fabric scraps, would later go on to fund aspects of the community’s freedom. Create your own brilliant compositions out of bountiful squares of fabric scraps, honoring Dr. King’s birthday and the inspiring women quilters of Gee’s Bend.
