I’m showing off a few more vintage quilts from days gone by. I’m not even close to showing everything so this may go on for months!
In 1990 I began veering off into a new quilting path: Amish style quilts. I’m not sure where or when I saw my first Amish quilt but I know I loved the bold colors and the simple design and thus began my “Amish” journey. Now mind you, I did not hand quilt any of my quilts, didn’t have the time or experience to do that. I again tied knots. Although I love the work put into Amish quilts, I knew I was only going for the inspiration.
These 4 quilts are all the same design, “Amish Shadows” but vary in their layouts. All were made in 1990 and I tried to use as many deeper colors that I had on hand. Not all are truly the dark solid Amish colors .
Next week I promise a truly Throwback Thursday……prom pictures then and now. Please do come back to see what was in style in 1968 and now in 2015. You’re in for a quite stylish but really hilarious pic….of me way back when!!!
