Joining the Lib Am Challenge!

I'm dreadful at posting, but I am brimming over with ideas for this Challenge as I adore Amish Abstractions. Hardly a week goes passed without me looking at the book and drooling over the quilts.

I'm currently gathering ideas for another Lib Amish Quilt.

This is my first one which I'm still hand quilting

S is for Stripes or Strings
which is based on Roman Stripes.

For my second quilt, I'm hoping to do this one.

I'm thinking a combination of strings and blocks. I have some lovely orphans and have just received some tiny tiny solid squares - I'm talking 1" maximum!

I'll be back soon when I've got the centre done.

Oh the strings are great looking.

Two of us made the checkerboard with the strips last time with our initials in the borders. Love this pattern. I think you can see them in the flicker group.

Happy Sewing

I love that second one where you posted the URL, it's interesting. I made a couple of Amish style long ago, haven't made any recently & I am NOT a hand quilter!
