Amish Quilt – Flying Martins pattern in black and ivory
Our Amish friends decided to make a new quilt. Flying Martins is the result.
Flying Martins is a patchwork quilt made entirely, upon close inspection, of triangles. There are more than 800 pieces of fabric that have been pieced together to make this quilt. The results remind us of how swallows in general and Purple Martins in particular are aerial masters to the degree that they hunt and consume insects while in flight. They dart and swoop: they maneuver so adroitly and change directions so suddenly that they seem to flicker in and out of existence. So, this quilt is named after them.
The Artist quilted this textile both traditionally and in the ditch to accentuate shape and movement.
