Quilt turning on the studio bed - Final answer
Amish bricks is a replication of an Amish quilt. If you look closely you will see there are many variations of each color. It also has the appearance of a scrap quilt with so many different solid colors. There is color progression and contrast in this quilt. It is hand quilted.
This quilt was designed for a Mystery quilt weekend I offered. It is my adaptation of an antique quilt I saw somewhere. It is long and narrow like a hired man's quilt.
This started as an antique quilt top I purchased. I fell in love with it when I saw it. A friend who did some of the best hand quilting I have ever seen quilted it for me.
This is one of my early bed quilts. I had someone quilt it with a long arm machine.
This is actually a very large wall quilt I made for my husband's office. Since he retired it is either on this bed or hanging over the stairwell. It is a combination of commercial fabrics combined with the shaded hand dyed gray fabric. I dyed the fabric myself.
Since returning to Florida this year I have been doing a little more exploring of the area. Of course a "sunset kind of girl" has to turn down Sunset Harbor Road and then explored Timucuan Rd. I learned that the Timiucuans were Indians who were at one time native to this area. So to document my "exploration" this street sign is tonight's puzzle.
