    My DH took me and the kids to Lancaster Monday and Tuesday for a short vacation close to home. Plus, my son had to be in Gettysburg both days for a test. But we spent all afternoon Monday and Tuesday going through the quilt shops and buying fabric. :D My DH had a blast helping me pick out fabric for my quilt. I met some wonderful English and German ladies who were here for the quilt show over the weekend. (I missed it) :cry:

    But if anyone is going to be going out to Lancaster, Zook's and Old Country Store are great. I went to a few others, but these 2 really impressed me with their selection and prices. As soon as I am finished using all this fabric I will be going back for more. It is worth the drive.

    My DH is worse than me about fabric. He is great. He cuts all my pieces out and I sew. Last night we stayed up cutting out moms quilt pieces and I had a chance to start piecing it.

    The "Holly Hobby" is going to be made into a lap quilt for my sister. When we were kids my mom decorated our entire bedroom in it. I thought she would get a kick out of it.

    How fun! Gorgeous material!

    I think there's gonna be a lot of women wishing their husband had your husband's enthusiasm.

    I just wish I could go on a road trip to Lancaster.
    I love the Holly Hobbie bundle. I have one bundle that I got at walmart before the fabric died, but not enough to make a quilt,at least I know that it's not impossable to find more. Thanks for sharing.

    Fantastic!! I keep promising myself a trip to Lancaster but I just keep getting sidetracked.

    Love the fabric. I'll keep those places on my "list" to visit.
