Gee's Bend Quilt

Have you seen the quilts that the ladies of Gee's Bend, AL have been making? I love the simplicity and geometric designs. This pattern is called "Housetop Denim Quilt" and is all hand dyed fabric. It has been so relaxing to just sew straight seams with almost no matching. AND no points to line up. A quilt store in Kansas City had several of these quilts on display along with a few kits. I don't usually buy kits but this one wouldn't let me move on until I decided that it had to come home with me! Any ideas for quilting designs?
