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.
