Quilts and Color, part 2

This is such a great exhibit, that I wanted to talk to another quilter, while I was there.  I did ask two women, "Are you a quilter?"  They both replied, "No, but my cousin is"!  This is for all the cousins out there.


Double Irish Chain, On Point, PA - 1880s


Ocean Waves Quilt, Mennonite, PA 1880-1890.




Nine Patch Quilt, Mennonite, PA - 1880s


Double Irish Chain, On Point, Mennonite, PA 1880s


Wild Goose Chase, Lancaster County, PA 1880s

Double Irish Chain, Amish, Holmes County, OH - 1920s
probably made by Emma Gingerich.

I loved seeing all the quilts made using just solids.  I think that's something that many quilters have moved away from.

I think we should do a challenge.  Make a quilt using just solids and have it finished by December.  Who's up for a challenge?
