Louisa's Quilt Having never quilted before I always thought of quilting as an American art, so when I came to live in the USA I challenged myself to make my first quilt. With the help of a patient friend who answered all my queries along the way it is finally complete. I chose an Amish style design and made a small cot-sized quilt which as it turned out was definitely a big enough challenge. Louisa is my second daughter and I started the quilt when I was pregnant with her. It has taken me over a year to make the time to finish it. She is still a baby, just, but hopefully it will last and she won't be the only one to use it.
