Today I received a book about Amish quilts in my mailbox.
Wow.... these quilts have power!! The patterns are beautiful in their simplicity. And I am impressed by the quilting of the Amish ! The quilting is definitely a forgotten part these days. I am so inspired!
Since last week I have the book Quilting with style by Gwen Marston too. It is a great book with on the first page also a 'strong' quilt. In this book you learn all about quiltingdesigns and all in Gwen's words :-) Now I want to learn how to make my own feathers etc.etc.
But I have to finish my new applique quilt first.I am quilting it and with my new books I have all the inspirations I need :-))
Over 53 nights sleep ..... I am on an airplane to AMERICA!!!
It is so exciting. Iwill see Bonnie again :-) , we are going to Paducah and we will meet over there Dawn,Laura,Linda and even two Dutch friends from Amsterdam there. ( yes I know I meet the Dutch ladies in a very roundabout way. LOL )
