My oh my...you have all been busy! This is so inspiring!
I will have something to post later on in the week -- but for now I will just introduce myself. My name is Diane, and I live in NYC. I have been quilting for longer than I can remember at this point. I also teach quilting at The City Quilter in Chelsea. One of my first loves in quilting was string quilting - in fact, I have a string quilting class coming up this weekend - but I've also played around with Liberated Quilts. Recently, since I've been going to quilting retreats in Shipshewana, IN, I've also fallen in love with Amish quilts -- so this challenge is a combination of a lot of my favorite things.
My Amish Abstractions book arrived yesterday, and I am devouring those luscious photos.
I've been a big fan of Tanya's work and her blog for a while now, so it's a pleasure to stop lurking and play with all of you on this fun project!
More later in the week, I promise... I am possibly the most technically-challenged quilter on the internet today, so I have to coerce a friend into taking some digital pix for me, but maybe this will inspire me to get a digital camera and get myself into the 21st century!
(no snow yet, darn it)
