    My family went to Amish town in Pennsylvania a couple of weekends ago. I finally had time to download these pictures. These were handmade. What do you think?

    The quilt and pillows are lovely. That Amish do fabulous work. What town did you visit? Lancaster and Intercourse are my two favorite Amish communities.

    We were out there in March and are going back in August. I plan you do some shopping in the morning before we see "In the Beginning" at Sight and Sound. Can't wait! There are some really beautiful quilt shops.

    Oh, I always wanted to do a Cathedral window quilt piece. It is all folded fabric with basting to keep shape.

    The folded star was a pattern someone wanted .. on this board just lately.

    Thanks for sharing the beauty !!

    I agree, the most impressive is the third picture !

    They do absolutely stunning work. I have never been to Amish country, but someday I hope to see it for my own eyes instead of photos. As beautiful as photos are, they don't give the quilts justice than seeing it for yourself.

    I especially liked the Cathedral Window pillow. I would love to make one but I'm afraid it wouldn't last very long if I put it on the sofa. :roll:

    I just finished this quilt last night and thought I would post it. I love it. It is going to go to - my husbands first wife's nefew and his bride. I guess that makes me the step-aunt (???). They are expecting in August.

    Please tell me what is "in the Beginning"? I'd love to come back again.

    You're absolutely right!!! It was so beautiful that I wanted to take them all home. Of course, if I do, I can't convince my hubby I need more fabric.

    Yep- it's there- right by Bird in Hand. Lots of cool names in the area. :)

    There is so much to do in Amish country. It's absolutely beautiful country and has many festivities throughout the summer.
