Pinwheel Quilt

                        Pinwheel Quilt  1930  Unidentified Maker (J.L.)  84" x 71"

The nice thing about an encyclopedic museum like the Met in NYC is the broad range of objects of cultural interest they own and display. Amish quilts have always been of interest to my wife and I. She and her family were quilters and we have many in our home. The difference in the Amish quilts and many early American quilts, was the care and quality they put into the utilitarian object they made. Hard to find that quality today. The hand made quality, attention to detail and love that goes into this craft is something I pine for.
