Intercourse Pennsylvania

OK, so after today I won't bore you with anymore of my Lancaster Quilt show pictures. Just wanted to show you my favorite little town in Lancaster county: Intercourse, PA. It has these cute little shops/ houses selling great quilts actually made by the Amish women!  Every couple of minutes a horse and buggy usually comes trotting by. While we were standing there, an Amish buggy pulled up to the "drive-in" window at the bank! Great food in this area too. Usually Mennonite/ Amish (PA Dutch). Yum!

My favorite quilt form the Lancaster Quilt show 2011

Does your kitty do this?
This is my favorite quilt that I saw at the Lancaster quilt show 2011 ! The eyes are just wild. I think that they are a photo and transfered on to fabric. The cat itself looks to be embroidered  (?) Cool, huh?

"Sun Bonnet Sue's" from around the world...Lancaster quilt show

Look at this amazing quilt! It is the countries of the world done in "sun bonnet sue"! There wasn't much info that we could see about this quilt. Wondering if it was a pattern or if she just thought this up by herself!?

Great customer quilt!

another beautiful customer quilt!
Isn't this one a gem?! She is so brave to mix colors like that...they work perfectly! Sometimes I'm too much of a perfectionist to try this!

Trying my hand at a new medium!

"Springtime Mountain"
Hi everyone! Just finished working on this one. I hand painted muslin, then machine embroidered grass and flowers, then added hand painted "flowers" by hand.

I thought it turned out pretty well...after I stretched it on stretcher bars...trying to get some of the wrinkles out :)  Next, I should try and quilt one too!
