Amish Quilt Collection of Faith and Stephen Brown

I've been spending way too much of my time staring at the pictures of Amish quilts from this website which I found via Moving Hands. It's an odd website because it's a gallery of images without a clear attribution. Based on the text (specifically a reference to a show at the de Young) I did a little search and found that the images are of the quilt collection of Faith and Stephen Brown. Currently I'm working on a couple of variations on Amish Bars quilts. I would share pictures, but both are prezzies that have yet to be gifted. Stay tuned.

Time to buy a bolt of black.
I am into the Bar Quilt idea of late, bars being made of braid...

#038, Broken Dishes, reminds me of the Luminosity you are working on. Beautiful work.

I found your blog whilst doing a search for Gwen Marston's Parts Depart.

Re the Brown's Amsih Collection, yhou may be interested in this blog.

We had to pick one of the quilts and liberate it. I think the challenge is ongoing, but some of the liberated versions are stunning.

I love Amish Abstractions. The quilts and the book are just awesome.
