Inspired by classic Amish quilts, Amish With A Twist is a set of lessons designed especially for the beginning quilter. The colors and finish of the cotton were carefully planned for an authentically Amish effect. This 15-part workshop approach focuses on the basics, with twelve lessons on the basic shapes common to quilting and three finishing lessons that include making the block "frames," adding the appliqué on the corners, and completing the sashing, borders, and binding.
Upon completion of all fifteen lessons, the beginning quilter will have created their own Amish With A Twist quilt, as shown. (89" x 106")

from Laurie Shifrin Designs
What Laurie says about her quilt: "I’ve called it Nature’s Jewels because I used the rich, fully saturated jewel tones found in an autumn woodland. Many elements of the design resemble stars and crowns filled with faceted jewels, and are repeated throughout the quilt to further enforce the theme. The pieced border carries that theme all the way to the edges of the quilt."
"When I received the gorgeous fabrics from Hoffman, I was immediately immersed in memories from my years living in New York and Connecticut. There, as the trees changed from their summer to fall colors, leaves were bursting with lush burgundies, rich golds, dark corals and deep plums, set amidst the rich evergreens, all with the intense blue sky backdrop. I knew that is what I would capture with this quilt."
"I made the center unit stand out as the main focal point by using the rich wheat tonal as a background. The small, cream dot squares are little sparkling points of light amongst the facets of the center crown of jewels. You can just see the burgundy triangles encroaching on the dark green border, resembling the prongs holding the precious jewels in a treasured ring."
"You'll see by looking at the quilt, that this quilt is a little easier than the last one – Ripples and Reflections. While this is still a quilt for the intermediate quilter, Nature’s Jewels is composed of simple snowball blocks and strip-pieced shadow blocks."
