G sent me this quilt from the Jersey shore for LAQ>
The note enclosed says "It is meant to be irregular and scrappy with not so straight seems. The history of the pattern is from women slaves of a cotton plantation in Alabama. They make quilts from old clothes. My quilt is reminiscent of blue jeans, coveralls and T-shirts. " I also believe in our correspondence she told me this is a rooftop and the red square represents the chimney.
So in the red the quilting represents bricks...we had discussed just a wavy crosshatch sort of a grid to represent roof tiles or shingles....it wasn't looking right...This design I think represents the shingles...and matches the quilts piecing....they are like intertwined tiles...Very interesting quilt.
I quilted this freehand on my INNOVA. I used cotton batting.
Thanks for looking!
