Hi there! Oh I love this! What a fun time! The quilts are just so beautiful and intricate! I often visit Amish country in Lancaster Pa. I love seeing the Amish quilts! I would love to own one someday : ) Have a blessed day! So chilly up here in NJ!

I also love the little goody basket she made!

Joyfully in Jesus,

Barbara J.

What a fun trip, Deb. The quilts are amazing. The award winning one reminds me of the samplers young girls made so many years ago. We need something like that near us :).


The little pins are beautiful. Why and how do you collect them? I like the sewing machine :-)


Carol, I'll answer your question here in case anyone else would like to know:

Well, no real reason for collecting them…just that we get one each year we go to the festival…free for pre-registering. When we stroll the aisles sometimes we will see die-hard quilters with denim vests on and every inch is filled with a quilting pin!! They are amazing!

The pin that’s the colorful spool of thread…my friend Chris gave me because she also made me a spools quilt that I have in my sewing room.

The Fig Tree sewing machine has a special memory. When Sarah first told me she was expecting her 3rd baby, he happened to be the size of a fig. So she gave me a basket full of “fig” items….one was the Fig Tree sewing machine pin. Another was Bath & Body Works FIG body lotion, a fig dish towel….several other items…..all unknown to me what she was trying to get across. Hannah finally realized she was expecting and the baby was the size of a fig. Then everything made sense!

Thanks for your comment.

It looks like you had a wonderful time. The gray quilt that your friends are standing with is stunning. So much artistry and creativity in one place!


What an amazing bunch of quilts. I can see why you enjoy going to that show every year. Some beautiful creations and artistry among those quilters. Hope your poor feet have recovered.


Deb, you did a great job highlighting some of the most beautiful quilts we saw! I realized after you all left on Saturday I didn't take as many photos this disappointed. I guess we were enjoying the show so much I just forgot. :) Anyway, looking foreword to reading part 2!
