I finished my quilt this summer as the heat topped 100 degrees in Indiana. I finished parts of this quilt on a treadle sewing machine (no electricity) at my Amish teacher's house, and some parts I painted with fabric paint. I was inspired by classic Amish symbols (fruit pie, ice skates, laundry drying on the clothing line, jam jars, etc), Icelandic sweaters, Japanese shibori and my experiences (and some fabrics) from Scandinavia. With thanks to the patience and expertise of my teacher, Saloma, who helped all along the way!
