Laura here- A few years ago, wait a minute-ouch 20 years ago, I fell in love with antique Amish quilts. Never able to afford them, I had to be satisfied with collecting books depicting their glory. One of the things that amazed me about these wonderful quilts were their color and in particular the blues that seemed to vibrate, (remember 20 years ago we were knee deep in "colonial" blue) especially when set against a black background. This quilt reminded me of those blues I loved.
