I've always admired the Amish quilts. I would love to take a trip someday to Lancaster PA and tour the museums there. I have this book that I was browsing through and found a simple "Bars" quilt that I thought I'd give a try, so I eyeballed it up and decided by looking at the final measurement I could wing it. It looked like fairly easy piecing, and it went together in a snap I must say, love those large pieces of fabric. I used Kaffe Fassett solids and backed it with some Joel Dewberry Modern Meadow I had left over. The quilting is a pattern from One Song Needle Arts. Let's just say I had no idea how long it would take me to quilt this, I used 27 bobbins on my long arm. The time I saved on piecing was made up for in the quilting. I could not wait to bind it and wash it before I shared it, I can't wait to see how it washes up. I want to photograph it outside and have it hanging up too, but here's what I could gets pics of ona winter day inside.
