Sunshine & Shadows/Trip Around the World Designs
Sunshine and Shadow uniquely refers to Amish made quilts, especially from Pennsylvania. The design is one of the three most common among the Amish and would have been made from solid fabric scraps.
Trip Around the World quilts are most often the same interpretation, but created without the wide borders. This distinguishes the makers from the Amish quilts. This design has also been around since Colonial times. It is a basic square patch and lent itself to scrap quilts.
