    I'm president of the board that oversees the Shoppach House Historic Park here in our town. The Shoppach House is the oldest structure in town, having been built in 1852. Each May we have our annual Quilt Exhibit and Open House. We have a small one-room church building in the Park as well that was moved from another location to here in 1961, and is called Pilgrims Rest Church (established in 1833). We hold the quilt exhibits in the church building and have the Shoppach House open for tours.

    So, here are some pics I took this year of the quilt exhibit. The quilts are a collection of new and old and are graciously displayed for us by the local quilt guild. So welcome to our little exhibit and enjoy!

    It was left plain and was beautiful! I would go crazy trying to do something like that.

    Here's a picture of the Pilgrim Rest Church where we displayed the quilts:

    And here's a picture of the Shoppach House itself (taken a few months ago back in the winter):

    During the quilt show, we had Grover and Betty Smith providing folk music in the house. You can see some quilts displayed in there as well:

    :D Oh I had such a good time at your quilt show in the historical park. Like a few of the ladies said, it is really special to see them in the park. They look like they belong there.

    I imagine keeping up the park is a lot of work. Good job, eddie. The past is worth preserving for the future generations to see.

    Thanks for a good time!

    Eddie,
    Thank you so much for sharing these with us they are dynamic. I really like the one toward the bottom, not sure if its a Carpenters Wheel or Lamoyne Star within the wheel, not sure what its called I'm sure some of the more experienced people here know, but I love all the hand stitching, what a labor of love..... Also the BOM with the reds and greens I believe is designed by
    Marti Michell, one of the gals I take classes with is thinking about doing it for the next BOM she offers. It is really striking.
    thanks again for sharing,
    Muriel

    The pictures are gorgeous, but I bet it just doesn't do them justice. Scrappys are my favorite of all time. Thanks for sharing. :)
