A Perfect Storm!

Few months back I signed up to participate in Lazy gal Liberated Amish Quilts 2010 Get Together.
 I thought it was perfect challenge for me since I love both, Amish quilts and liberated quilting.

I added another element to that challenge and  restricted my self from buying new fabrics for the quilt. 

I looked through the Brown Collection of Amish quilts to get inspired. I also looked through few books in my library for the challenge. 

I think I am set. 
 "Broken Dishes" pattern has caught my attention. 

I have not worked with triangles in a long time.

This is like a recipe for perfect storm!

An Amish liberated pattern with favorite kind of fabrics and a very short time to work on it.

The temperatures are going to be very high tomorrow.

It is going to be stormy in my sewing room...since I am starting it just a week before it is due.

I picked a really old Indian woven fabric from my stash and any and all the solids I can get my hands on.

Cut  few pieces of fabrics today. Made some blocks and this is what my design wall looks like right now.

I am not sure if I am going to be able to finish this quilt in time. 

But, I am having fun and enjoying the process. 


  1. I love the black triangles, how they vary in size, and the Amish colors you've chosen to go with them. It does look like a stormy day!

  2. I love the look of the solids, keep going and I agree enjoy the process the quilt will get done in your time frame!
    love how you paired the grey with the black.

  3. I love what you have going on so far! All colors look so dramatic paired with black. :)

  4. Great start ... let the deadline work in your favor! Your quilt is going to be awesome ~ I just know it!


I appreciate you taking the time to read my posts. I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you!
