My Quip – Blumish – Quilt Now In Progress

Good Day,

Andy and I are now working on a new quilt. This quilt began with Kimberly Einmo and her original 2011 design, Almost Amish Star Chain Mystery Quilt. After meeting with Kimberly and learning her prized techniques, we decided we would venture a wee bit out to left field. We have decided to deconstruct and explode her original design and tweak it a bit. We are creating our Blumish.

Keeping with some classic Amish traditions, we are using solid colored fabrics. All fabrics are of the Robert Kaufmann Kona Cotton series. Also we are maintaining an essence of a central design.

At present we’re heading toward a quilt with the width of somewhere between 50 and 60 inches.

Here are some of the constructed parts awaiting assembly.

Keep checking Quilts SB for our current progress and quilts and wall hangings in process.


Jim and Andy
