I'm Sophie from a lot of places, but currently living in Dallas, Texas
I don't have the Amish Abstractions book, but looking through the photos from the Brown's collection online, I was initially drawn to two of the 9-patch quilts, one from the 20's, the other from the 40's.
005:Nine Patch-Midwest c.1920 74"x62"
026:Nine Patch-midwest c. 1940 50"x42"
I may well change my mind after I pull out my fabrics–I will be making this quilt from stash, but I'm thinking I'd like to play with a quilt constructed of 9-patches like these which don't make you immediately see the 9-patch blocks.
