More Vacation Pictures

I forgot to post this picture taken in Owatoma, Minnesota on our way back from Michigan.  We stopped in this little town because the shop is called Cotton Patch--the same name as the shop I work at in Tulsa.  The quilt was designed by the lady who is the store owner.  I bought the pattern and someday I'm going to make this quilt.

I bought this little quilt in Shipshewanna, Indiana.  It's a real Amish quilt.  I hope you can see the lovely hand stitches in the picture. 

The red border contains the initials of several Amish women who make these quilts and sell them.

When you say "little" about the Amish quilt, about how little are you talking?
