“I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.”
~ Kurt Vonnegutt

I stopped at The Heritage Hjemkomst Interpretive Center in Moorhead, Minnesota, which is just across the Red River from Fargo, North Dakota. The building serves as a home to Hjemkomst Viking Ship, Hopperstad Stave Church replica, quarterly museum exhibits, which this quarter was an outstanding quilt exhibit; and the county archives.
You should go online to read about the story of this ship, the man who dreamed of building it and his family who accomplished that dream for him; or you should take a road trip to visit here!
The Hopperstad Stave Church is a replica of a Viking Church.
I had no idea quilts could be so artistic, dynamic and just plain awesome!
Yes, that’s a quilt!

I hope you live today as if tomorrow were yesterday.
