Amish Circle Quilt #114 - "Hanging Quilts"

Block # 114 -
"Hanging Quilts"

Started on:

Completed on:

Paper piecing and raw edge applique'

   This quilt block is one I have flagged to make for a small wall hanging.  I have a decorative clothes line hung in my quilt room and have made a few things to hang on there with clothespins.  It is really cute and I already have a couple of these block hanging there.  I'll have to share a photo of it in an upcoming post.

   If I were to drive through an Amish community on wash day, which I've heard tends to be Mondays in many districts, I would actually get caught up in photographing quilts hanging on the clothes lines!  

   On a similar note, we went to Yellowstone National Park back in August of 2011.  If you've been there you know how people crowd around any wildlife sightings.  We rolled by a huge group that was watching a herd of elk.  There were some Plain people (probably Mennonite) with their backs to us looking at the elk.  Mark pulled his camera out to snap a picture of the elk.  Me, the Plain people.  Their backs, not their faces.  I'd say I have my priorities in order.  (Besides, they were between us and the elk.)

   Now, you know.  I'm nutty.

   Blessings y'all,
