Liberated Amish 2010 Challenge

I found a fun class / challenge hosted by Tonya that I could not pass on.

I will play with solids, Amish inspiration, liberated techniques, and even add some letters and numbers.

So I have been cutting into my precious Cherrywood fabrics, just smaller pieces (7" * 9" from their Scrap bags). It will be a scrappy look...


These are 5.5" blocks. I am aiming for a doll / crib size. There's no bigger pieces of fabric in my stash for borders. I will play a bit with layouts and see...

If it looks like fun, head over to the blog. There's still time to join in!

Hei!! Dette så morsom ut!! Jeg har vært fasinert av Amish lenge, men det er mange år siden jeg har gjort noe av det. Har ganske mye selvfarget, som kanskje dette passer til....Takk for responsen på de bøkene! Dumt å bruke tid på noe som ikke er bra... Da kan man jo heller sy!! Annek:-)

Of course it looks fun! Love those colours, will have to look into what cherrywood fabrics are though I really don't need to increase my stash levels right now!

Perfect timing. I just checked out a ton of Amish Quilting books. I've been so drawn to the black lately.

What a marvelous blog you have! I just spent quite a lot of time looking at some of your blog, and I will be back for moore soon! I just love your bold choises of fabrics put together - especially your red ones.

I'm not usually into Amish quilts but this one is fabulous. I love how the fabrics and colours look in this one and it looks like liberated fun. I always get inspiration when I visit your blog.
