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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  28. 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.
