    Happy summer to all. Here in Maine we are starting out with a couple days in the 90's - and the high was only 63 yesterday!
    it is just beautifull and i love the Amish quilts they are so beautifull each and every pattern.Weather here is very hot now it was 94 on my porch yesterday and that was in the shade.Lord help all people who has to work out in it every where.

    This is fantastic! Oh you did such a great job and the colors are wonderful against the black!
    For the Doll Quilt Swap, the theme for August is going to be Amish inspired quilts... if you aren't already planning on signing up - you should when the time rolls around! (July's theme is patriotic)

    You did a great job. Love the colors. I used to live in NH but have moved to Ohio and there are a lot of Amish communities near me.
