Today I’m pulling a a top from the quilt top cupboard with a Roof Top design.
It’s made up of long strips of fabrics and cheater panels of squares. Very simple construction, with not many pieces.
The top is recent dating to 2006. I bought it from a lady that made it and sold it on ebay.
Please forgive my sloppy pic..my wordpress program isn’t letting me crop.
I thought some machine quilting would make this a nice durable picnic/utility quilt? It measures 82″ x 89″.
The Roof Top pattern isn’t usd a lot, but makes a nice utility style quilt.
The Gee’s Bend quilters used the pattern.
Here you can see how the printed squares of the “cheater” fabric give a bit of extra interest to the piecing. This might be a fun design to use with the large scale modern prints that are available now? The ones that are so pretty you just hate to cut into them!
