I was attracted to this blanket design immediately. Last year on a trip to New York City I visited the American Folk Art Museum and saw one of the Gee's Bend quilts there. I'm excited that a new exhibition is currently in Houston so a friend and I are going down next month and I'm so hoping to see the real one in person. Anyway, I'm actually making this as a gift for someone who recently had an intense experience seeing this exhibition when it was still in Atlanta. At this point I'm about a third of the way through. As ya'll can see in the photo, I'm using Lion Brand Cotton - merely due to the cost of the Rowan denim, and even the Elann Denim. I'm really enjoying it, but it did just sink in the other day how much more there is to go!
