Quilt: Abandoned

Abandoned by Renske Helmuth (22.5 x 20") Hand applique and machine embroidery/quilting This quilt portrays what is happening all over the country. Where there were once thriving farms, there are now weeds and some left over buildings. The few farms left over are getting bigger and bigger. In this prairie scene the buildings are gone, except for some grain bins, the last sign that once a family tried to make a living here.
