About the Book
By Tangular Irby
When Charles schedules a playdate with his friends Lucius and Robert, they have no idea they’re about to travel back in time to Gee’s Bend, Alabama to discover the origin of the beautiful quilts in Grandma’s house. It doesn’t take long for the boys to learn Grandma’s quilts are more than pretty pieces of fabric stitched together to keep them warm; the history behind the family treasures is rich, and bursting with love.
Charles and his Gee’s Bend Quilt is a journey through art and adventure, stitched together through the eyes of young Charles, who dreams of creating a quilt of his own one day. Will his friends support Charles’ dreams of making a quilt? Has he learned enough to do it? And what surprise does Grandma have for the boys that will change everything?
