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.
