Bloggers Quilt Festival – Amish Mini Love


If its September is means its time for the Bloggers Quilt Festival at Amy’s Creative Side. This is one of my favorites that I made this year. It was for an Island Batik Ambassador challenge called Mini-Love and they provided the fabric.

Amish hex signs have always intrigued me.  I grew up in Pennsylvania, Berks County, and they were abundant.  My only problem was that the colors were never my favorite so changing it up was what I did. It was one of the first quilts I designed in EQ8; I had done a few before but in EQ7 but hadn’t really learned the upgraded version. I was glad I did as it made checking out my vision easier than drawing.This quilt hangs in my sewing studio in our apartment.  I really love looking at it each day.   The original post has some information on how to make it and one day it may be a pattern!

      Of course! I never thought of that even though I saw those hex signs all the time.
