I am a big fan of whole cloth Amish quilts.
Here is a baby quilt in a museum in Illinois:
I made a whole cloth baby quilt once- it's the only one I've made yet. But I should try my hand at it again soon. My quilt will always remind me of when we got evacuated from our apartment due to an impending mudslide. I took that quilt to do by hand in the hotel room. It gave me something to do instead of worry.
I just found this neat website with stencils for quilting patterns- you probably know about it already:
WOW....What a beautiful little quilt! I've done a couple of whole cloth baby quilts, but they were panels....I like to outline all the figures with hand quilting....Most of the time I keep a couple on hand to work on....
The pieced quilt I am working on now is very simple, but I have to cut out lots of 2 1/2in squres for the Flying Geese, and the corners of the Saw Tooth Stars. I also need to cut out a bunch of cornerstones.
I love to do baby quilts...They are small, easy to work with, and don't usually take as long to make as larger ones. In fact, I've just started a collection of flannel Fat Quarters..I have both brights and pastels. They are SO soft.
FQ's are great....They can be used in scrappy quilts, and you can get ideas from them....then get more of what you need. My problem is that I HATE to cut into my Fat Quarters....They are so pretty.. Sometimes it's enough to just look at them, or just touch them.....and imagine the possibilities .
Thanks for the link...I'll take a look....I've never done an all white whole cloth quilt like that....It would be a wondeful challenge....
