This is a replication of an Amish quilt. It is a small quilt. I did this after I realized every quilt I made didn't have to be king size!
I photographed it on a shed on one of my students farms. It was a great place to photograph until she moved to Virginia.
I have to share this with all of you:
It is a link to a 6 minute video by Julie Silber about the Espirit Amish Quilt collection.
In addition to seeing beautiful quilts you also will find out about the Amish Quilts of Lancaster County. I was not bored for a moment and wished it was longer.
Julie Silber was one of my early role models when I was a beginning quilter. She is not a qulter herself but in my opinion she is the foremost quilt authority anywhere.
Elements is a quilt I did in the Amish style. Replicating Amish quilts is an excellent way to learn about color, value, and quilting styles.
This is another Amish 9 patch variation I made while studying Amish quilts. It is in a private collection.
All of these quilts are hand quilted.
Elements is tonight's puzzle.
