Louisiana P. Bendolph explains, “Most of my quilts are really based on the Housetop design. But once I start working on them, they get ‘un-Housetop.’ I started with Housetops. I never really thought about Housetops as my favorite, but they always start out that way. Many times they don’t really end up looking like a Housetop unless you stand back and look at them. Then you can see that it is based on the Housetop.”
