Tonya here. Okay, let's do it: Liberated Amish 2012. Take an inspirational Amish quilt and liberate it.
Some of us did this once before (with a few more rules), so you can take a look at the great quilts posted in the original blog and Flickr pool
For this year's challenge, we will:
1. Each pick an Amish quilt to be our starting point. (or you can mash a couple together...). You can pick one from the Faith and Stephen Brown collection if you want to (in other words, that's optional this time).
2. Make the quilt liberated. You can do that ala Gwen Marston or Gee's Bend or... But the goal is not to have a duplicate of the original with slight changes (like using printed fabric instead of solids). Go for wonky, unruly, playful etc. And don't give me a heart attack by trying to match things up and keep all the points pointy....
