Solids Vault - Day 5

Lazy Gal Quilt, adapted from a Gee's Bend quilt
I was commissioned by Windham Fabrics to adapt 8 quilts made by the Gee's Bend quilters a few years ago. It was a partnership between the two and I am really surprised that I was able to stay true to the original patterns. The key was to made a reproducible pattern for today's quilter with cutting and sewing instructions AND for the quilt to easily be recognizable as a Gee's Bend design.

Here is the original by Qunnie Pettway:

What do you think? Do they look the same? All solids, btw.

Now it's time to visit today's bloggers on the Kona Solids Hop.
