Amish Quilts &c.

We usually go to the Mennonite Quilt Auction in Goshen, Indiana in the fall. I saw the most beautiful Ocean Wave quilt there made with a black background and solid colored triangles, very Amish. It was the most striking quilt I saw there, so of course I want one! Unfortunately I didn't have an extra couple of thousand dollars on me, but I have a good stash of vintage solids so I've started on it. This will take a while. In the meantime I made this miniature, I believe the pattern is generally called Shoo Fly. I get frustrated with big projects, so it helps to make miniatures from time to time, I like getting something finished!
