This is an Amish grandfather house built on a farm where his children are now living and farming. This is the way they take care of the elderly instead of taking them to the nursing home. The house is one room with a small kitchen area on one end and a bed on the other with a dresser and a rocker by the window. I was curious about what the inside of an Amish house looked like and this gave me some ideas.
The quilt block was in front of the Visitor Center downtown. There are many on sidewalks and some blocks are painted in the streets. Antique shops, good food, shops to explore, and the Kalona Museum. Kalona Iowa is the Quilt Capitol of Iowa and the largest Amish settlement west of the Mississippi River. We enjoyed the day with the friendly people who hosted the events and we're looking forward to another trip soon.
http://www.deepershopping.com/item/fay-risner/the-rainbows-end-nurse-hal-among-the-amish/6566733.html Book 2 in the Nurse Hal Among The Amish series is now for sale at DeeperShopping.com. Synopsis Fay Risner in Book two of her Nurse Hal Amish series links the modern world to the timeless Amish way of life when Nurse Hallie Lindstrom falls in love with Amish widower John Lapp. This is a fascinating look at two differing cultures set in an intricate and richly detailed tapestry of a traditional Amish setting in southern Iowa. The Amish simple way of life based on faith, convictions and honesty is entwined in this love story between an English woman and an Amish man. Hallie Lindstrom, Home Health Nurse, has copper red hair, a fondness for jeans and owns a copper sedan which inhibits the Amish community's acceptance of her. Struggling with her decision to convert to Amish, Hallie realizes if she is allowed to marry John Lapp the worldly possessions she values have to go. Amish widower, John Lapp's patience with Hallie wears thin when she stays upset over his helping a pretty Amish widow, Roseanna Miller, on her farm. John points out Hal's total shunning of English ways and complete obedience to him is the only way he'll marry her. He fears his love for her isn't enough to keep her in the Amish faith if she can't go along with his ways. Stella Strutt, opinionated Old Order Amish, is determined to get rid of Hallie by turning the community against her. Hallie has to decide if she is strong enough to give up her way of life to be forever Amish, make a life in the community by running a medical clinic on the Lapp farm and put up with Stella Strutt bad mouthing her and the clinic for eternity.
