Trying To Make Up My Mind

Hey, Rene' here from central Florida where, at the moment, it is cold and dreary.  I am excited about this Amish Get Together.  My book has not arrived yet, but I've been looking at the pictures on the website. There are so many beautiful quilts.   I really, really love this one:


I also love the simplicity of this center square quilt from the 1930s:


However, I also love the broken dishes, 36 patch with stripesRoman Stripes and Ocean Waves quilts.

I wonder which if any of these are in the book?

While I wait for my book to arrive, I will be looking through my solid fabrics, ordering more solids and deciding whether I can do justice to the #91 pattern.  I may change my mind and use the #104 36 patch with stripes as the inspiration for my project.

The quilt block in #91 is called Jack's Chain. Maybe you could look it up on the internet for more inspiration?

A Jack's Chain is on my "quilts I plan to make one day" list.

Off the top of my head, that Broken Dishes and that Ocean Waves are definitely in the book (and in much better color). it's hard to narrow down, isn't it.

Erin, thanks for the info. I'll look into it.

Tonya, it definitely is hard to narrow down. Maybe receiving the book will help.
