Quilting Class #2: Roof Tops Gees Bend style

Barb took us through class number 2, which meant cutting apart our improvised log cabin blocks and putting them back together.
Barb and Rain hold up Rain's completed quilt top.

Barb's quilt top that she started in last month's class. Her husband says that it reminds him of  the carpet of his childhood piano teacher.

Barb's second quilt top.

My own deconstructed blocks up on the design wall as I begin the process of putting together the quilt top.
