I set off on one of my mornings to a town called Marion where the Amish have settled in Kentucky.
I saw one horse drawn buggy when I was there, not like Lancaster PA where you see that at every turn.
The small town itself had some quilts on display at the town hall and church.
The ladies in the church were telling me that all the quilts on display were made by mothers, aunts or some relation of the present day congregation between the 1930's - 1950's .
You will see they are honest quilts that clearly had an every day use.Which is entirely what they were intended for.
