Technique: Peyote Stitch

This gorgeously geometric peyote-stitched bag was inspired by the quilts of Loretta Pettway, one of the talented African-American women who have put the Gee's Bend community of rural Alabama on the map with their bold and distinctive quilts. Written instructions for this bag may be found in the June/July 2005 issue of Beadwork. Read more about these amazing women and find inspiration for your own bag in The Quilts of Gee's Bend by John Beardsley, et al. (Tinwood Books, 2002).
