Lydia works at a quilt shop in Berlin, OH….better known as Holmes County or Amish Country. She gave me permission to take her picture in order to have as a reference for a painting. The day I met her, she was wearing a green dress & was finishing up the binding around one of the handmade qults in the shop. As we were pointing out a specific quilt we really liked made of deep , rich shades of purple, she said that purple was also her favorite color. So, using artistic license, I took the liberty of changing her dress for the painting.
