Once again today I am reliving my time in Kentucky. I love the touch of fall colors in this photo.
My day in Rowan County was terrific, with the beautiful and diverse Foothills Quilt Trail and friendly ladies to show me--and Gracie, the traveling dog--around.
Brenda Stamm lives right across the street from her family's tobacco farm where this quilt hangs.
She had not only her grandmother's doll quilt but also the patterns that had been cut out of a paper bag and used to make it.
Though many of us know that pattern as Dutch Girl, this one is Dutch Doll, after the doll collector who passed it down to this proud Kentucky farmer's daughter.
