Day 17 – Amish Sampler
January 23, 2008
This Amish Sampler is a quilt that we did a few months ago using the RJR solids. It is a new style of sampler that we really enjoy doing, because you can play around with block placement, and make your quilt unique. With this design, you once again have area’s where you can do some classic Amish quilting. And it really is the colors that make this an Amish quilt. Why not try this same quilt using prints, and create a totally different look?
The hardest part about this project was trying to figure out how we were going to photograph it. Cori and her family pull this cutter behind their horses in winter – and it is the closest ‘Amish’ item that we have. So, with a fresh coat of snow, we ran outside on Cori’s farm to quickly snap a picture.
(and yes – kits of this quilt are available at your local quilt shop)
