Amish Country

We returned from a short trip to Illinois to see my dad. We played tourist along the way and took some side trips. Arthur, Illinois is the heart of Amish country. When we lived in Sullivan, IL we made frequent trips to Arthur for the bakery and meat market. I was a traditional quilter at the time and Millers Dry Goods out in the country was always on the agenda. My quilts always took ribbons in the Arthur and Rockome Gardens quilt shows. So the trip was nostalgic.

Below are a couple of inspiration photos taken along the business district. I love the repeats of lines and shapes.
