started this years ago, can't recall exactly when, but i know it was after bonnie hunter showed hers off...9 or 10 years maybe? hers was very large and her triangles were very small...i was immediately wowed and a bit intimidated....and who wouldn't be?
but one day a pattern crossed my path; a smaller version with bigger triangles (for hand quilting, you know) and so it was started. the charcoal solid was bought on my first visit to lancaster quilt shops when my suitcase bulged with over 11 yards of fabric! solids were collected in little bits just for this project, and as expected, the last of my cherrywood scraps are included. and now the first row is done...my fingers are itching to quilt it...the auriful quilting thread was bought at maine quilts 4-5 years ago...charcoal....it's definitely one of those process quilts and one i'm planning to keep for me. not true amish, but homage to the amish quilts that first lured me into quilting....the photo doesn't do the colors justice, so much more vibrant close up.....i'm just tickled that it'll be a top very soon and can probably start quilting in the fall....who knew natural fibers could be so darn much fun!
