Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin : Yeah, it's still snowing. I got out my seed catalogs yesterday, time to go through and get some ordered. I like the heirloom, organic varieties, but some of them just aren't really "northern" hardy. Our short growing season plays havoc with the tomatoes and peppers.

Q: What is a stiletto?

I'm sure they aren't referring to high heels!

K: A stiletto is a sharp, pointed instrument that is used to ease and hold seams as they pass under the presser foot to keep them in place. Some people use a seam ripper although I have heard of people using a wooden meat skewer with great results. CLOVER makes a stiletto/awl that works wonderful as a stiletto, and is great as an awl to punch holes in leather and fabrics.

Amish Quilt Trivia....

The Amish did not bring quilt-making to America. They learned it from their "English" neighbors.

Quilts are the third-largest source of income for the Amish, after farming and woodworking. Most Amish women quilt during the winter months, when gardening and farming chores have subsided.

Quilts are a traditional Amish wedding gift. Most women give each child at least one quilt to take to their new home.

When a family moves to a new Amish settlement, they may have to sell their quilts or store them away if they do not conform to the unwritten rules of the new church district.

Antique Amish quilts rarely if ever contain the depictive representations of everyday life commonly found in "traditional" American quilts. Clothing manufacturer, Esprit, founded by Amish quilt collector Doug Tompkins, was the only corporation to have it's own quilt curator.

The age of a quilt can be determined by what dyes were used to color the fabric. Early Amish quilt-makers used dyes from weeds, berries, and bark.


Show and Tell....

I've been trying to make this "Quarter Quilt" (Brick Path) using one of Kaye Wood's patterns for quite a while now. I was sure that I could whip it up in a weekend and if I hadn't been interrupted a kazillion times, I might have done it. But, I put the last stitches in the binding tonight, and voila! a new Quarter Quilt for the spare room.

It even matches the comforter quite nicely! Of course, the comforter will be coming off when the nice weather finally makes it's way to us.

The last QQ I made was flowery and I used a rose-red fabric and seeing as the spare room is most often used by my son, I thought it needed something a little more manly.

I loved how this pattern went together too, there's a 'twist' in the instructions, and I thought that was the most fun part but you'll have to order the pattern to find out what the twist is! The first pic is a close-up of the fabrics and the pattern; the 2nd is a pic of it on the bed.
