Day 12 – Amish Sunday

January 15, 2008
buggies have 129 pieces
border has 406 pieces
Finished Size: 22″ x 8 1/2″
While compiling our 100 days of quilt, Cori and I were searching back, and trying to figure out what really was our first quilt pattern. Right now, we think this is it. I have it on record that a quilter – who happens to be my daughter’s kindergarten teacher, bought a copy of this pattern way back in 1997.

Back then, we were on a definite ‘paper piecing’ kick, because it was a method that we could use to make so many different designs…and you don’t have to be an expert quilter to use this method, you just have to be able to sew on a line.

As you can tell from the above information, there were A LOT of little pieces in this Amish sampler, and Cori hand quilted it. (and knowing Cori – she probably did it in one evening.)

    Another truly spectacular piece of quilting. It’s not just the quilt themselves that are beautifully put together but the borders too – as if just as much thought went into those as to the main design. Day 12 and still I haven’t said to myself – “not lovin’ this one!”.
