Description

Housetop Denim Quilt: 51" x 62"
Original quilt by Rita Mae Pettway: 70" x 84"
Redrafted for today's quilters by Debby Kratovil

The quilt on the cover is my adaptation of Rita Mae's quilt and was beautifully quilted by Connie Gallant. This quilt is owned by Windham Fabrics and hangs in their offices in New Jersey.

Now you can create your own version of this popular Gee's Bend quilt! The original Housetop Denim Quilt was created by Rita Mae Pettway. Windham Fabrics acquired the rights to adapt this pattern from Ms. Pettway and the Gee's Bend Collective and asked Debby Kratovil to write the pattern. All cutting, piecing, and assembly instructions/diagrams are clearly illustrated inside, along with a photo of the original quilt and the designer, Ms. Pettway. Debby retains the rights to this pattern. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Accurately sew a 1/4" seam

You can see fabric requirements in the fourth image above. These fabrics were created by Windham Fabrics in partnership with Debby for the most realistic approach to making a copy of Rita Mae's quilt. Any solids - and even batiks - will work perfectly.

LOVE love love this very detailed quilt pattern! I saw the documentary on these wonderful, courageous women and was challenged by my quilter sister to try making a Gee's Bend inspired quilt. I just happened to have five vintage acrylic/wool skirts from the 1970s that a friend gave me. I was going to donate them to the local thrift shop, but changed my mind when I realized the colors just about matched the fabric needed for the quilt! There's plenty of fabric in the skirts to reuse/repurpose to make a quilt. Now just to find something equivalent to the white in the pattern. Will post if/when I finish my quilt. Thank you, QuilterbyDesign, for being here on Etsy. :-)
