Design-time....

Time to start pulling the Amish books off the shelf again...may be a bit of dust to blow off too! Then again if I just order the new Amish book then there is no dusting to do and I can get right to piecing! Brilliant!My name is Siobhan and I currently live in Augusta, Georgia. I've quilted for over 20 years and during that time have made several Amish style quilts and even a couple "liberated" though no "Amish liberated." (does that phrase make anyone else just grin and shake their head?...sounds like some underground movement that entices teenage Amish to wear plaid and play video-games...)

I did dream about this project last night...I do some of my best quilting in my dreams...but I haven't selected the design yet. My goal for this week is to finalize my design and to dig out my solid fabrics again (duh, I just packed them away at Christmas when I finished up my waverunner....)

Hi Sio,

I'm going to have a bet with you - no money involved, no fabric, just a plain honest bet.

Which one of us can finish their quilt first! LOL

you look so cute in that pic!

yeah, someone else pointed out the "liberated Amish" conundrum. I hadn't even thought about it - so used to the term Amish only referring to quilts.
