Portland Modern Quilt Guild meets at a church, so it was a fun piece to bring for Show & Tell. I enjoyed looking around at everyone as they gazed at the quilt. Their eyes were wide, even though it was late and the meeting was almost over.
Northwest Quilters also meet at a church, so I will have to remember to bring it for Show & Tell there next time. It's one of the most intriguing quilts I have discovered. I wish I knew more about it.
Joyce Gieszler was visiting yesterday. When she saw the quilt at the meeting, the imagery struck her as two congregations joining together under one roof. That's an idea worth investigating.
There's a lot going on under that big rainbow roof, and indeed there are two buildings. Could they represent two churches and two congregations joining together?
What churches in the Lancaster region of Pennsylvania merged around the turn of the century? Now there's a question! I'm not sure how to go about answering it, but maybe it will lead to an account of this quilt. Somehow, somewhere, someone must have had something to say about the quilt.
Seek and you shall find!
