Introducing the newest members of the Gnomie Collection: Limited Edition Quilts.
Throw blanket-sized and oh so giftable.
The throws were made by the Qua-Geh quilting guild in a small hamlet on the outskirts of Monrovia, Liberia. Qua-Geh I the Kpelle language means "We can make it."
Qua-Geh was founded by Maude Davis. It has 11 members and has been in existence for more than 20 years.
Qua-Geh is one of several guilds that are members of the National Quilters Association of Liberia. Qua-Geh has trained some 29 individuals in the art of quilting. Quilting in Liberia is a heritage of the freed slaves who settled there in the 1800s, bringing this form of appliqué quilting from the United States.
