Pieced by Elva; Quilted by Rosa
We regret that we don't actually know Elva. But we've met her daughters and can vouch that she's plain!
Rosa is our chief quilt creator. She is Old Order Amish. Rosa is in her fifties, has 14 children ranging in age from 11 to 34, and has 27 grandchildren. She and her husband have been farming for 35 years. She loves farming. She writes, "I've lived on a farm all my life, and it's there mostly what you need: meat, eggs, milk, hay, straw, water, garden, fruits, vegetables, yard, enough room to spread your wings. [You] can stay home and work and don't need to pack lunches all the time. You can go out in the barn together and milk cows, sing, etc. And at times, you can go visit or help someone during the day. Don't take me wrong, it also has its disadvantages too. But all in all, I'd say farming is the best."
Guilty pleasure: they always have homemade pizza and homemade ice cream for dinner on Saturday nights!
