Amish Stripe


My Amish Stripe wall hanging is now pieced and ready for quilting.


The binding is also going to be done in the same light green fabric as the inner border.  Now, I just have to decide how to quilt it. Any suggestions?

Adding the black bars sure made the colours pop out. I am in the middle of making a small table topper with the leftovers. Waste Not, Want Not will be a good name for that one, don't you think?



I'm still dreaming of my trip to Shipshewana, Indiana. Here's what came home with me.

Thirty-five yards of fabric.


Some 1930's fabric.


Also, Civil War fabric.
 
And how can you not love the solids.


Some wonderful stencils.
 
Here is a brand of needles, I have yet to try, for Applique and hand piecing.
 
My favourite time of year! If you like the colours of Autumn, you are surely going to love pumpkins gone wild. I do believe some of my new solids will go nicely with it.


Here is my new fabric storage container. Love the colour. Just like Kermit the Frog.

Until next week.....happy quilting!

Karen: You must have had a wonderful time in Shipshewanna - and great stash enhancement!! Interesting looking needles - must keep an eye out for them - maybe on Yoder's online site.
Thanks for sharing.
