There is an old mill in the next town, which has been restored by the historical society. It's a wonderful place, full of history. Every year they have a number of different events there...art shows, an apple festival in the fall and a quilt show in June. This past weekend was the quilt show. I brought my "Almost Amish" round robin quilt to be displayed. It was draped over an old wagon (with a sheet underneath for protection!) and looked lovely hanging there. My daughter also displayed her quilt there. I had put a picture of her quilting the quilt on my longarm and she was quite proud of herself when people looked at her and said, "Aren't you the girl in the picture? Your quilt is beautiful!
The top picture is of a general store they have set up in the mill. Next is my quilt and then there are antique quilts which were on display in the woodshop.
After looking through the new American Patchwork and Quilting magazine I started a new quilt. I love the red nine patch quilts they have in this issue. I have lots of blue 2.5" strips and decided that I would like a 2 color nine patch quilt as well, so now I have 24 blocks made. Lots more to go, but they do go together easily using Bonnie's method from her Sister's Choice quilt! Thanks for coming up with that, Bonnie!
I also picked up a copy of Quilter's Home on Judy's recommendation. Mark Lipinski is from NJ and I'd heard of him through the state quilt guild and the Quilting Professionals Network. The magazine is interesting and fun! Thanks, Judy...I'd known it was coming out but didn't realize it had already hit the newsstand!
