Janet’s Amish quilt
Janet’s beautiful Amish quilt was so fun to quilt. She requested black thread, which is compliments the background fabric so well. I used a 30 tex Perma Core thread, and a 8020 cotton/poly blend batting. I used one ruler for this entire quilt and a water soluble marking pen. My favorite rulers are from Linda at The Quilted Pineapple, and for this quilt I used her 12” Edge ruler.
Adding a cool design in the sashing when I custom quilt, is one of my most favorite things to do. And, this quilt didn’t disappoint. I was going for the four pointed star design, and also got a double octagon frame around each block. I love framing quilt blocks, they stand out so much more.

Thanks for stopping by, happy Wednesday!
