This quilt is about 25 years old. It was purchased on a Pennsylvania Amish farm. I recently repaired a couple of tears it had acquired over the years.
The quilt is based on a block called Card Trick. These rows use the basic block.
The block also has been enlarged to medium and large sizes, and constructed with Log Cabin style strips, a creative way to vary a traditional patchwork block.
The white background areas are filled with the feather quilting that is so beloved by Amish quilters, which also include hearts around the center medallion.
I am always fond of the purple and green color combination, and the addition of blues and soft reds is really successful. The result is a lovely contemporary use of a traditional block!
