Of Quilts and Queens…

…and other Q things. It’s always an interesting quest to come up with Q words to share for ABC Wednesday.


These first two photos were taken in Bristol Indiana.


Quilts on Barns in Amish/Mennonite Country.

Quilts in the Der Dutchman Restaurant in Ohio Amish Country.

And now a quick trip across the pond to England to visit Queen Victoria.

For my last offerings we’re back in the USA for Queues of buggies from Amish Country.



Linking up to ABC Wednesday started by Mrs. Nesbitt and carried on by Roger and the ABC Team.

Despite the rain last night (Halloween) we got about 44 trick or treaters at our door. The bonus of the night was being able to meet a new neighbor we hadn’t met before with their almost 1 year old little boy. So sweet.

I’ll leave you with a couple “Quiet” verses from the Bible to calm (quiet) you in our noisy world.

The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17 (ESV)

First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NASB)

  1. That’s the most trick or treaters I have heard of in my rounds of Blogdom today. You must be giving out some great stuff!

    I am partial to the queues of Amish wagons, though Queen Victoria is looking especially lovely today. =D

  2. I love those barn quilts! Believe it or not, that is relatively new to me. I might have enjoyed doing something like that on our barn at The Farmhouse, but I have missed my chance. No barn here in town! 🙂

    Those are wonderful words on quiet. Indeed, we need that kind of quiet in this crazy world!

  3. Wow, the Red and white quilt is stunning! Smiled because of the name, because “Der” is German, and then follows an English (Dutchman) translation of Hollander:) Interesting to see so many buggies

  4. You came up with a wonderful selection of Qs… loved all the quilts and was surprised that the quilt barn was in Washington! Enjoyed hopping across the pond with you to visit the Queen. You got some great pictures. In the ones I took, she had such a huge crowd of admirers that you can hardly see her )).

  5. No doubt the first verse was one of the glad verses counted by Pollyanna’s dad. I like it. I also like the idea of hanging quilts on barns. Be kind of neat to hang one above our garage, if we didn’t have to take it down whenever it rains. 🙂
