Another Amish Inspired Quilt

I just finished this quilt top up this morning. It was inspired by an antique Amish crib quilt I saw on either on Flickr or Pinterest. I changed the size to make it more of a throw size; it's now about 58 x 63 inches before quilting. I also changed the colors a bit to take advantage of some solid scraps I already had, although I tried to keep the colors relatively close the the original. I bought some Kona in straw for the inner border and blocks, in taupe for the outer border and blocks and in indigo for the binding and blocks. It looks black in the pictured 9 patches, but it is indigo.


  It was a bit windy when I took the pictures. Here's a close up of the 9 patch center on my bed.


I think it will be machine quilted with a diamond grid across the blocks and into the inner border, and then fans or cables in the outer border. The original had a wide binding, so I'm going to go with that too.
