I'm a member of a local Quilt History Study 

Group; so Antique quilts inspire me.

I made this little doll quilt with 

a matching tote. It's styled after

 an Antique Medallion doll quilt

It measures 14" x 14" and I hand

quilted it only in the ditch. Doing

that gives the quilt a nice puffy look.

I love the fabric in this quilt; the

only problem is that I bought it as

a remnant and the selvage was cut off.

I'm in love with such treasures from the 


This would make such a cute gift for

a girl of any age.

Living here in Lancaster county; I'm 

always inspired by Amish, Mennonite and

Vintage quilts.

I made this small wall hanging which

measures 21" x 21".

Pinwheel is the center design which has 

printed fabric; unlike the Amish that use 

mostly solids - it is machine quilted with 

a more modern quilting design - Amish quilts 

are hand quilted with feathers, flowers or 

other motifs.

Both are for sale in my Etsy shop.

Happy Quilting!
