More of our Trip



This is one corner of a store in Intercourse PA that sells lots and lots of quilts. There were several racks like the one on the right side that held dozens of quilts each. The prices were surprisingly low considering the quality. Most were under $1000 and many were hand quilted. As you can imagine, I spent quite a lot of time there. There was another room selling fabric and a quilt museum upstairs. I could have spent the better part of a week there.


This was in the quilt museum upstairs.


This one is very traditional.


I loved this strippy one.

What a great trip you had. Bob and I went thru PA. about 10 years ago and I always wanted to go back. We had the whole family with us and they were not as interested in spending too much time there.

This is making me rethink that and maybe try to get back there.

I love the stippy one too. It would make a great background to something. Hmmmmmm.

Oh, my, that strippy one is really something! It's worth clicking to enlarge to look closely.
