Strip Quilt with five columns alternating in three (3) columns of a red and black woven plaid with two (2) columns of thin strips of lavender, yellow, and pink solid fabrics sewn together. The pastel strips do not have the same color running through the entire column, meaning the stripe is broken up where the strips are pieced together to achieve the full length of the quilt. The quilt is backed with four (4) different fabrics pieced together including a blue stripe, a white and blue small scale floral print, a green on green leafy vine print, and a faded burgundy and cream large scale floral print. The edges of the quilt are not even. In some places the front is turned to the back, while in others the back is turned to the front, to form the binding. The green leaf print and burgundy floral print back fabrics are visible along one long edge on the front. A thin layer of batting is placed between the top and back, which are hand quilted in a pattern of diagonal lines in white thread.
This modified strip quilt with nine blocks was pieced by Avis Collins Robinson in the style of Gee's Bend, Alabama, quilts. It was quilted by Mensie Lee Pettway and Andrea Pettway Williams. The quilt top is comprised of nine (9) blocks in rows and columns of three. Each block is formed from asymmetrical strips of fabric, with the blocks sewn together so that the strips are oriented in alternating vertical and horizontal directions. The strips are made from pieces of corduroy and velvet in shades of red, pink, purple, and white. There is a border along the left facing side in dark purple velvet and a wider border along the right facing side in red corduroy. The quilt is backed with a solid red cotton or poly-cotton plain weave fabric. Binding on the top on bottom edges is made from chartreuse velvet, the left facing binding from light pink corduroy and the right facing binding from bright purple corduroy. The top, batting, and backing are joined with quilting stitches in white thread sewn in slightly undulating horizontal lines. A wide strip of plain muslin is sewn along the top edge of the reverse for hanging.
