Airing the Quilts

Painting Description

Family life and personal history are at the heart of the Amish/Mennonite idea. Even within something as simple as a quilt, the family connections are restated as those heirloom items contain patches from the clothing of family members who have gone before. These children are taught and told through everyday items about the sense of continuity and family history.
