Hi This is Natima from Australia

Hi I'm Natima from Australia. I'm so excited to be part of Liberated Amish challenge with you. I have made a few Amish quilts including the Amish style picnic rug in the picture below. I also visited Lancaster in PA many years ago. I bought my first pack of solids from there. I want to try my hand at liberated quilts and this challenge will give me a real chance to do that.

This is DH waiting for his picnic lunch on my very own Amish style picnic rug. Every time I use it I noticed people admiring it. It was also my first machine quilting. I must say I'm proud of it.

I think for this challenge I will choose Bars for my liberated quilt. Looking forward to it. Thanks Tonya for hosting it!

ooh, I think I'd be too scared of getting the quilt dirty to put it on the ground. i'm a coward! I bought my first solids in Lancaster County - all poly-cotton blends. bleck. I've learned better.

Thanks Ton, at first I was scared of using it, but then I thought, who is going to use it when I'm gone hahaha! It's easy wash and I did it many times now. I get lot of admirations every time I use it. I was lucky my fabrics from Lancaster were 100% cotton. I'm known to get a snip and burn tested it when we lived in the UAE!
