My first thought when I saw the theme was patch was patch work quilt, therefore, I'm going with that.
When we visited Tamarack in Beckley, WV, I liked the way the quilts were scattered amongst the other crafts and arts.
Although there was one area devoted to quilts, by and large they were scattered around in a variety of areas.
Since I like quilts it was nice to keep running into them as I wandered.
All the shots above and one more shot below are from Tamarack.
The rest of the shots were taken at the Beckley exhibition coal mine.
The last shot was in the single miner accommodation. The shot above was in one of the family homes and has a patch work quilt across the trunk where the quilt below is over the bed.

I thought of quilts too but didn't have any photos. Yours are wonderful. I really like to see them hanging on walls like that.
Have a good weekend (keep cool!).

So beautifully made. I love quilts, wish I knew how to make 'em.
It is a beautiful thing when patches can be sewn together to create something so lovely.

I love quilts too, but went with something else. You really had some beautiful ones in this post. I tried to put myself in that last photo and decided I couldn't live in such a little space.
Great photos -- with some splendid quilts in view. :)
What a great collection of patches! Wonderful stuff.

Beautiful quilts - it is amazing what works of art are created out of stray patches of cloth.
My maternal grandmother used to make patchwork quilts for all her grandchildren. They were beautiful. It is a pity i didn't pick up her skill.
