I chose to include this photo of Noah and the Ark with a quilt in the
background because sometimes quilting becomes a refuge from the
world and a place to sort out one's thoughts.
Sometimes quilts are a patchwork of material left over from
other projects or older clothing no longer being worn.
Amish-Mennonite quilts can be bright or dark although
from the sampling I saw on this visit most were dark
colors. There was also one quilt that was all white
except for the stitching in the quilt.
As shown in this quilt and the one above, some quilts keep
repeating a standard pattern but change the colors.
