New Traditions

Tradition, with a twist- I was delighted to see Misik's challenge for this round.
My first exposure to quilting was at the Kutztown State Fair, in the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish region.  Their incredible work was hung on the barn walls , framing the black buggies and sheepskins on display.
I still feel that they are masterworks, and the balance, simplicity and sue of color inspire me even today.
I began piecing my own hand dyed muslin squares in the early '80's,
then the dots crept in-

.....and segued into the massive dottiness that is typical of my new tradition today-
Don't know yet what I'll do for this one, but it'll be fun!
