Another of C Jean Horst’s amazing and well made quilts. Flying Geese is a very organized pattern with 4 sets of geese flying north, south, east and west and forms a star in the joining block. This is a three fabric quilt that repeats throughout. Well made and unusual patchwork. Well quilted by an Amish woman. This quilt was also pieced by an Amish woman who often likes her treadle sewing machine better than her solar powered Bernina sewing machine. Amish are forbidden to have electricity in their homes, but that never hinders their quilt making skills! This quilt has 7 hand quilted stitches per inch.

  • A beautiful and fresh change for a log cabin quilt! Here C Jean Horst has used designer Kaffe Fassett's beautiful new floral 100% cottons to make a strikingly bright but simple log cabin, which is why she calls it Simplicity. She has made a common quilt very unique with her choice of designer fabrics. While each patch is alike, all blocks are working together beautifully to show off an awesome collection of cottons. The lovely part about this quilt is that there is a beautiful feather quilting design going through the lighter side of the patchwork design to create an intricate touch of hand quilting designs. She also has a documentation tag on the back corner which gives the name of the quilt, the maker, the location, the date, and the fabric content as well as a note "made in the USA."
