That is pretty cool that you both mentioned the upper right. That one isn’t a real Amish quilt, because it was made in the Amish style by a contemporary quiltmaker. But, it is probably my favorite as far as the colors go. The only thing I don’t like about it is that she took the easy way out and used all HSTs including for the center diamonds, instead of cutting large black diamonds. But the colors, I think, are perfect. All the other quilts pictured are truly Amish.
So, I’m going to give it another shot trying to mock up maybe 4 blocks at a time (the quilt uses 18 full and some half and quarter blocks). And see if that improves how it looks.
