My parents were Penn Dutch. My aunt still lives in Lancaster the heArt of Dutch country. I have seen designs such as these all over that area. They still make quilts by hand and all kinds of things to go with them. I want to make this to keep some of my heritage alive. Maybe my grand daughter will take an interest since pattern is easy. Thank you.
