This is a handmade, hand quilted coal miner's prayer quilt. Applique is machine done for durability. This quilt is queen size but is pictured on a king size bed. Picture blocks are approx. 18"x18". Prayer is hand embroidered in the center. Backing is done with a very pretty black and white pattern. Quilt is made with cotton/polyester blend fabric. I live in coal country and I have never seen another one like it!
Miners Beach Falls , Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Michigans upper peninsula This little waterfall is hidden on the far East end of Lake Superior's Miners Beach. The Pictured Rocks get their name because many of the sandstone formations and walls have been stained red, orange, black, white, and green from traces of minerals.
