When I decided to go on this trip I also decided I would bring home an Amish quilt. The one I chose may not be the traditional Amish quilt but as the Netty says things have changed, colours and styles.
It has definitely been lovingly made by a group of Amish women in the county of Kent in the town of Berlin, Ohio.
|In this house my quilt was born .( Alma's House)|
|On this old sewing machine my quilt was pieced.|
|By this lovely lady, Alma Troyer.|
|This is my king size quilt , it was hand quilted by Sarah Miller and the ladies who work with her to hand quilt .|
|Alma says this is one of her favourite quilts to piece.|
|Meet Netty ,each lady seems to have their own quilting motif so you know who has done the quilting.|
|Netty quilting a quilt for someone. The Amish ladies can make themselves money through quilts , quilting and quilt tops.|
|Quilting is a job shared|
|Admiring Netty's work|

|Jenny ans Sue are studying this quilt|
|Di bought this quilt top|
