Amish Log Cabin Wall Quilt

Improvisational Amish style Log Cabin quilt, Courthouse Steps variation. I like the movement in the zig-zag areas as your eye travels across the quilt. See my most recent series of Amish quilts on Instagram @karengriska.

Amish style Sunshine and Shadow Quilts

You can do so much with the simple one-patch. I like the action that this color arrangement creates. The actual colors are nicer than they look on my screen, especially the hot pink.

The quilt below has a more classic layout with the squares creating a big diamond shape, and the large blocks in the corners. This quilt is available in my Etsy shop.

New City Lights Quilt Pattern

Here's my newest quilt pattern: City Lights. It's a combination of regular piecing and raw-edge applique. After machine washing and drying it will have a nice chenille style texture. It's easy to make and is a great choice for a beginning quilter. Directions are for a (small) wall quilt and twin size quilt.

New: Fandango Quilt Pattern!

This is one of my all-time favorite quilts. And now I've finished the pattern for it. This quilt is a lot easier than it looks. Fortunately! Can you imagine a busier quilt than this? Eleven pages, instant download, lots of clear hot-to photos. Lots of fun to make. Good winter blizzard project.
