Sunshine and Shadow Doll Quilt

This is the only Amish style quilt I’ve ever made — a Christmas present for my mother-in-law, Gail, in 2002. It was a departure from the 1930s style quilts I was making at the time, but I was interested in trying the contrasting stitching in the quilting. I do think it turned out rather well, although I am not sure a real Amish quilter would have used two different colors of thread. It’s the smallest doll quilt I’ve ever made, at 15″ square, and it was made with vintage percales and plain muslin for the back.
