I'm a great follower of the 'keep it simple' principle, so I have stitched a very traditional Amish 'bars' design in plain cloth. "Lovebirds" is from Quilting designs of the Amish by Pepper Cory.

One of my favourite Amish quilts is Roman Stripes. The Kaffe fabric seemed to blend with my very meagre stash of solids. Judith - quilts are looking great and hope you enjoy. The fabrics are not faded at the bottom of the quilt - my next workshop needs to be photography!!

We lived half an hour from the Amish country in Pennsylvania for 20 years, and
every trip up there gave us views like this!
Such heartfelt memories of the quilts, the fabric and the people! This is where I got inspired to start
quilting in the mid 1980-s…

I wanted to piece the background but decided to try a confetti effect so used the colours of New Zealand . Red for the Pohutakawa, Yellow for the sun,Blue for the sea and of course green for the land. Enjoyed making this little quilt for you Lynn . On its way tomorrow.
