Amish Quilts


I see the date and am reminded of what happened 15 years ago…a tragedy we will never forget.  But today I want to write to you about a more simple and pure set of quilts made with solid colors.  They are not crowded with adorable prints and they are often set with a black background color.  These are a few Amish quilts from my doll quilt collection.  The first one has beautifully vibrant red and purple 9 patches.  It only has four blocks but they are set off so nicely with the hand quilting which you can see in the close up below.
The next one is a charming little blue, gray and dark red quilt I picked up in Lancaster, PA when they had a quilt museum featuring the collection from Esprit.  Unfortunately, the museum has since closed but their gift shop used to have beautiful quilts made by local Amish women.  Can’t you just imagine watching this skilled woman with her needle and thread creating this treasure?  I love the .  Read More ...

Football Fans!
Join the Scoreboard Knit Along this season and make the Scoreboard Cowl. 

So easy and fun:  Choose your team's two colors - one will represent your team's scores (MC) and the other will represent the opponent's scores (CC)

You'll end up with an awesome cowl that is a piece of sports history reflecting your team's entire season.

There are two options: The long versing: knit one round for each point scored:  Here's Rose's (scarf version) from last year's Broncos season:

This year there is an abbreviated version where you knit two rounds per score, rather than per point!  End up with a shorter, but equally stunning cowl!

As long as supplies last, you'll receive a Scoreboard KAL project bag when you purchase your yarn!

Although we are in Broncos country, we have other team colors too!
