Inspired by blocks from a quilt more than a century old, Quilts from Aunt Amy is dedicated to the memory of Mary Tendall Etherington's beloved aunt, Amy Anderson, and her exceptional quiltmaking talents. Now the design team of Country Threads has taken blocks from one of Aunt Amy's traditional sampler quilts to create 20 scrap-quilt patterns with a wonderfully old-fashioned feel. Each project combines Aunt Amy's enduring, classic style with the distinct flavor of Country Threads. Inside, you'll find:

  • Favorite patterns from Aunt Amy's time, including Bull's Eye, Drunkard's Path, Wedding Ring, Flying Geese, Arabic Lattice, Jacob's Ladder, and Slashed Album
  • Traditional designs updated to accommodate quick cutting and piecing techniques
  • Special vintage photographs of Aunt Amy, plus a fascinating history of her creative life

Since retiring in 2014 I have enjoyed the luxury of time--time for gardening, babysitting, volunteering, traveling, reading, feathering my nest, and sewing. My husband, Roy, and I still live in the home where we raised our three boys; it's a wonderful house but it is also 120 years old and always seems to need a remodeling project. I have an ambitious plan for a large gardening project in the spring and I can hardly wait to get that dirt under my fingernails. I'd like to be remembered as a maker of pies, quilts, gardens, art, fun, and home. What more could one ask out of life?
