Inspired by the Gee's Bend Quilters

Gee's Bend style Housetop (1)This as yet un-named quilt is another project from the cupboard of doom.  It was inspired by the Gee's Bend Quilters. I just love the Housetop variation of the Log Cabin.  There's so much you can do with this block!Gee's Bend style Housetop (2)

I decided to do some experimentation with the quilting. I used metallic thread for the first time on this.  The circles were made by quilting from the backside.Gee's Bend style Housetop (3)
