What a delightful time I have had these last two days. Holly and I attended the AQS Lancaster Quilt Show. I wish I could post the winning quilts but we were limited on the pictures we could take.
Just a few pictures on some upclose details.
This one just kept drawing Holly and I into it. It’s fun to get close and see details that you miss from standing back.
We enjoyed walking through all the vender booths soaking up ideas and buying a few things. Loved the Bernina booth. They had a clear housing over a running machine. It really drew people into their booth.
Now I know what the inside of my new Bernina looks like!
I’m still wondering why it cost so much.
“Ezekiel Saw the Wheel”
Holly and I didn’t take any classes but we did sign up for three lectures. The highlight of my time was the evening lecture by Kaffe Fassett “Dreaming in Color. I love his eye for color and what he does with designing fabrics and making quilts. Such an inspiration to me.
Another lecture we took was by Pam Holland. Here Holly is with Pam.
Such a colorful lady!
Pam is a master story teller sharing with us her adventures as a traveling quilt teacher. Here is a link to her blog.
This is one of Pam’s quilts that is wimsical and draws you in.
The saying quilted in the middle is one I have loved in the past few years.
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
All of her quilts have stories and are made from the heart.
My next post will be on the “Tentmakers of Cairo” exhibit.
On the way home we stopped at a gas station and picked up a couple little guys!
Jeremy and Cheryl are spending the week-end in Harrisburg and it worked out great to meet them and bring the boys home with us.
Timmy’s happy with his helpers.
