Amish Trip Around the World 1920
ca 1920. 78x82. Found in Kalona, Iowa, USA. Initials "JME" in embroidery on back binding. There is fading in the 12-inch amethyst rayon crepe border, which is common in rayon crepe Amish quilts. The colors in the squares are those wonderful Amish jewel-like combinations of turquoise, amethyst, pink, navy, purple, and brown, all in plain weave cotton. These may be machine pieced.
