Amish Sunshine and Shadow Quilt

This Sunshine and Shadow quilt was inspired by my love of amish style quilting.  Of course, as quilters we love to put our own modern twist on it… I added the ‘bars’ (another amish influence) on the side to spice it up a bit.

I sewed the jelly roll strips together, cut the pieced rows into strips and then reorganized them into this pattern… similar to a trip around the world quilt.   I really loved working with the black, it makes the colors pop out nicely…
