Can you guess what the subject of today's post is? My sister Lorrie and I took another trip out to Intercourse, PA last week. I don't need to tell you what we did there...you can fill in the blanks! Needless to say, it involved fabric. We made the rounds. We hit four fabric shops that day!
After a marathon shopping spree and a delicious lunch featuring cranberry chicken salad and homemade bread, we ended up at my favorite spot, The Old Country Store. After finding some wonderful fabric, we went upstairs to visit the Quilt Museum and the museum shop. I took lots of photos, so you could join me on a tour. Are you ready?
I love all of the miniature quilts.
This is a whole-cloth quilt. The ornamentation is in the intricately stitched quilting patterns.
These boxes all held sewing kits. They nested inside of each other and when you removed each lid, the sides fell open like petals on a flower. Each layer held more sewing items. They were crafted by a local artisan.
Primitive hand made Santas.
Both of the Noah's Ark sets were hand-carved and painted by a local artist.
The Old Country Store is a wonderland of hand-made treasures. If you're in Lancaster County, PA, a visit here will be a treat. If you would like to see the fabric shop, pantry quilt room and main area, you can click here. I hope you had fun!
Until next time,
