Yvonne Wells’ Quilts

I have shared several of the quilts from the recent exhibit of African American quilters from Alabama. The quilts I am sharing today were part of that exhibit. These were all made by Yvonne Wells.  

 
  
  
  
  
  
  
 
  

   
 

  

  

 

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    Fabulous quilts! Loved seeing these today!

  5. As well as the fascinating history depicted in the quilts, I’m intrigued by the quilting. Those kind of naïve Baptist Fans cleverly add perspective to the pictures. Thanks for sharing these, very thought provoking.

    Katy, did you say that these quilts are in the Flint Art Museum? If so, I will contact them to find out the schedule for this exhibit. I grew up in Flint and will be visiting this summer. I’ve seen an exhibit of the Gee’s Bend quilts and would love to see this one. Thanks for sharing.

    I was very glad to find your page with Yvonne Wells’ quilts. I have loved her work and stories since discovering them during a quilt aesthetics course at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Her work touches me in such a profound way because there is so much to each story. Thanks for sharing since there were a few I haven’t seen.
