Pieced by Emma; Quilted by Amanda
We're sorry to say that we don't really know Emma; our dry goods store contracts with her to piece crib quilts and small wall hangings.
Amanda is a young married woman with 3 girls and 2 boys. She does absolutely beautiful quilting. She lives around the corner from our chief quilt artisan, Rosa. Amanda is very quiet and shy, as are many Amish craftspeople. They are taught from childhood to respect their elders and not to draw unnecessary attention to self. It's part of the quiet, humble way of many devoutly Christian Amish folk.
Amanda is a happy early riser; she actually enjoys doing her chores! She says her favorite thing to do is quilting, followed by cleaning and baking. As far as her guilty pleasure, she enjoys going out for an ice cream cone.
