Hans Herr House, built in 1719, is the oldest existing structure in Lancaster Co., PA. I am a direct descendant of Hans Herr, who was the first Mennonite Bishop of Lancaster Co. The quilt was made following a visit to the house, which is now a museum. The house is overshadowed by a center diamond, which though being more associated with the Amish, is probably the quilt design most representative of Lancaster County.
On the back is a pedigree chart showing the line from Hans Herr to myself, and a scan of the photo I worked with to create the quilt.
The remainder of the back was strip pieced.
