When I was younger, I trained to be a Classical archaeologist. This pattern is special to me because it combines not only my love of the ancient world, but also my love of quilts! It was a very satisfying piece to make, and I was honored to be asked to speak about it and my design inspiration at QuiltCon, when it was first published by Modern Quilts Unlimited. I hope it is a fun quilt for you, as well!

Mandy Leins was hooked on quilting after making her first Rail Fence quilt 11 years ago using her grandmother's 1943 in-cabinet Singer. Since that first quilt, Mandy's passion for quilting and teaching has turned into a business. A professional longarm quilter and pattern designer, Mandy's first two patterns were published in <i>Modern Quilts Unlimited</i> and one, "All Together Now," was juried at the Machine Quilters Exposition. Formerly, Mandy worked as a classical archaeologist and the ancient world continues to influence and inspire her quilt designs.
