Quilting in Indiana

Looking over all our activities during the Dear Jane retreat in Shipshewana, I felt our opportunity to quilt with the local Amish women was very special. My hand quilting skills are not the best. Sitting and speaking with one of the women was such a joy. Realized we had so much in common. She had children ranging in age from 20's to toddlers. A son of her's had moved out to Idaho, and was involved in winter activities including skiing. She had visited him, and toured Yellowstone National park. It was a enjoyable morning.
