Show Report - Lancaster 2012

Well friends, I'm afraid there is no pictorial show report.
It is against their rules and I am honoring them.

As a consolation, I am giving away a CD of the show.  No hoops to jump through, no promises to make, just leave me a comment.


I will be picking a winner at random on Friday - Good Luck!

On the way to the show, we stopped at Poole Forge, a lovely historical museum.


Here are some of the antique quilts they had on display.  I am sorry for the poor quality, I was using my phone.


Wow, these are almost the exact colors I used in my Mother's Garden quilt - love it.


I'm in love with this one; toile' love




I thought the pink was a nice change from the usual green in this Grandmothers Garden.


Simple block to block construction - just a nice quilt.


I wanted to take this opportunity to thank 2 women that I have never met who helped me finish my Mother's Garden Quilt.  Mary Jo and Joyce of Michigan sent me pink fabric and  without their generous gift, I could not have made this quilt.


Before you sigh in boredom and disgust, I swear this will be the last and final shameless promotion of this quilt.

Photo credit to Pauline - thanks pal!

Don't forget to enter the give away to see all the quilts of the 2012 Lancaster show.

Carol said...

I would really enjoy seeing all the quilts from Lancaster. What a treat as I have never been to that show, but have visited the area several times. And that toile quilt from the museum is awesome.

Monica said...

Again...congratulations! Your win was well deserved.

Great photo of you and your wonderful quilt!

Poole Forge--What a fabulous looking home (museum). Thanks for sharing their quilts and thanks for the opportunity to win the CD sharing the quilt show experience. Cute photo of you too! :)

Thimbleanna said...

Yipee!!! A beautiful photo of YOU and your quilt -- Congratulations Again!

And Poole Forge! Did it used to be a farm and Sealyhams were bred there...maybe in the 70's??? (Were you in York?) Hubby's Uncle grew up there I think -- if this is the same place. I'll have to check with his Aunt. Hubby's Uncle's mother (is that a mouthful) won at Westminster in 1977 -- I wonder if it's the same place -- it sure looks like the pictures that I remember!

Jan said...

I'm happy to see that you posted a pic of you with your quilt. Would love to see it in person!
The antique quilts are fun to see, too. The pink and white appears to be the rolling stone pattern, but how different it looks in just two colors!

Carla said...

Congratulations on your quilt! It would be a wish come true to ever make it to Lancaster to see the Amish quilts, I doubt that it will happen in my lifetime. Love all the quilt pics and would love to win the dvd so that I could pretend I was at the show!

Michele said...

Thanks for all the eye candy! I bet you had fun.

Lori said...

I love that first quilt (rolling stone?) I just might have to put that on the list.....
Don't put my name in as I got to see the quilts in person. Let some one else get a chance.

Nancy said...

A quilt show on the way to the quilt show? Bliss! And that is the pink in the old quilt. wow. Congrats to you. I love that area of PA in the spring time, and miss going to the Lancaster show. Would love to win the CD. Thanks for the chance.

MJinMichigan said...

Congratulations on the ribbon. I'd love to win the cd and see the quilts from the show. Thanks for the pictures of the antique quilts. I love the toile quilt.

Vivian said...

No need for apologies. Share that lovely quilt with us as often as you want. It's truly an heirloom.
Thanks for the opportunity to get a close look at the Lancaster show, and thanks for sharing the CD with a lucky winner.
Unfortunately, so many ignore the rules of a show if sharing is forbidden, and they just share away. Rules are rules, and you're a noble lady.

Nyla said...

Your Mother's Garden quilt is worth seeing again. It's a lovely thought and a lovely quilt. I'd love to see the quilts from the show and appreciate seeing the quilts from Poole Forge too! Thanks for the lovely pics.

regan said...

We would NEVER sigh in boredom and digust (that was too funny!).....your quilt is fantastic, and a pic with you in it is that much better! You should be very proud, and we can never tire of seeing a beautiful quilt!

Thanks for showing those great quilts at the museum! I love seeing quilts in homey settings.....that's where they look the best, I think!

Thanks Barb!

Mayleen said...

Looks like Poole Forge would be a great museum to go to! Love that toile quilt and the others too. Congrats on the win!

Kim said...

Boredom and disgust are you kidding me???........the quilt is amazing and you should be allowed on your own blog to shout from the roof tops how happy and proud you are of this win! How often does this happen?
It is a big deal. :0)
congratulations once again and I'm so happy you'll have that picture forever with yourself and the quilt!

Thanks for the chance to win the DVD
and Happy Sewing

When you've made a winner Barb be as shamless as you wish. It's a winner for heavens sake.

Lovely quilts from the historic house. Gladly take anyone of them off their hands.

Outback Crafter - Debra said...

Virtual quilt show. What a great idea. That is a good way for us international friends to see the show. Thanks for sharing.

Sue-Anne said...

I think you should shamelessly promote your quilt any chance you get, it is stunning and you should be very proud of it.

Love the antique quilts and thank you for sharing them with us.

The antique quilts were pink - a gogo! The toile one had a kind of pillar print look as well. Gorgeous! (And I love your garden quilt!)
