Patterns Around My Town

Well I finally left home today to take a few shots for this weeks My Town Shootout. Hope you all enjoy!



A selection of quilts made by the Mennonites in Barnwell County.
As you can see there are various patterns for quilts.



A close up of the fabric pattern and the quilting pattern (lines of hand stitching) that was used in a quilt.



Rows of homemade jams form a pattern on the shelf.



A closeup of the pattern used to form my wicker love seat.



Bottled sodas line up in pattern in a game of ring toss.



Pam chose a wonderful patterned fabric and pattern to make Althea's Halloween dress.




Dorie and Berley Linder became friends when she was just 1 year old; his kindness and generosity have followed a wonderful pattern through the years and Dorie can't go to town without stopping by to see him.

A precious little girl, and quite a pattern on his tie. Pattern of friendship is indeed unique in this theme. Great job.

A thoughtful post. The shadows cast by those soda bottles are quite wonderful, and I can never get enough of looking at the patterns in textiles. We have a large Mennonite community here, too, and it is very interesting to see what they produce, and how they dress.
