Progress on Janie's Quilt

Above is a picture of a quilt that is on display in a museum in Pennsylvania. I am making a reproduction of this quilt, with some slight variations, for a client in upstate New York. Although not an amish quilt, the original certainly reflects the love affair that the Pennsylvania "deutsche" have had with red, green and ochre, and will be a striking quilt when finished. It will be queen sized and I am on the piecing for the last flying geese of 80 which I have hand pieced - nothing beats the empowerment of being exactly right the first time and I have enjoyed doing them. Will be starting to piece the strips this evening and when that part is done the rest is a stroll on the park!! Will keep you posted - hang in there, Janie, it won't be long now!!
