Made in Ohio's Amish Country, this "Trip Around the World," also called "Sunshine and Shadow" pattern is typical of the dark plain fabrics of traditional Amish quilts. It is said that the pattern's name originated with a scripture reference to light coming after the darkness. This moderate-sized piece features expert craftsmanship in a size that is easy to hang. Comes with a panel on back for hanging.
Most modern quilt pieces are made of cotton fabrics and batting so be sure that your quilt is absolutely clean and dry before storing your quilt. A good bag for storing an heirloom quilt is a freshly-laundered pillow case. Plastic bags, such as trash bags, are an absolute no-no for storing quilts! You will risk discoloration from the chemicals in the plastic as well moisture (or even mold) problems if the fabric can't breathe.
