    Maybe some of you will remember...

    about 1 1/2 years ago I posted a picture of a quilt that I saw on an Amish web site, and I was looking for a pattern. Couldn't find one, so by looking at the picture, I made my own pattern. It finished at 120 x 120. The first picture is the Amish quilt, the second - the purple one is my quilt.

    Now that's one purrrty quilt.
    I love the fact that even though it's more than a year since you first looked for the pattern, you've remembered that some of us may have been wondering about the progress of that quilt. And thanks for sharing the original for those of us who didn't remember!

    The quilt turned out so beautiful. I love the combination of leaves and log cabin blocks.
