Back from Lancaster

I didn't intend to post again today but couldn't help myself. I just got back from Lancaster and had to share! We started with the vendor mall at the quilt show and by the time we finished we only d a little over an hour to check out the quilt display. Call me crazy but $10 just seems like too much to spend and only see about a quarter of the quilts. So...we did what all good quilters do when they have time on their hands...we went shopping at a quilt shop! We went to a shop about 3 miles from the quilt venue, Dutchland Quilt Patch. It is a Mennonite shop with incredibly good prices on lots and lots of fabric. I found more Moda Vienna Nights in their discount room so I HAD to buy it. Here's a photo of my loot both from the vendor mall and the quilt shop.
I found the Slider and Genie Magic Bobbin Washers that I really wanted. I also found a hemostat. I have no idea what we are going to do with that on retreat. Good to know that I if anyone starts bleeding uncontrollably I will be able to help out!

Anyway, I feel like a slacker because we didn't see the quilts but we usually go on a weekend, get there earlier in the day and can see everything. This was a rushed trip so I am looking forward to the show in Hershey in July. (I really do like that one better anyway.)

Off to finish packing. Again, have a great weekend!


  1. Sounds like a great day! I always like hitting the vendors at shows, but the few I have been to they have the vendors around the outside of the quilt displays. The best of both worlds!

  2. What a great day! I love going to the vendor booths and a quilt shop to boot! Can't beat that for a great day. Have a good time at your workshop.

  3. Hi Suzan ~ just happened into your blog, I am another PA gal and hope you don't mind that I comment! I always LOVE the Hershey Show ~ much friendlier and a better layout! Missy works very hard at pleasing the visitors. DGD and I take many classes at Hershey, it is just easier with everything in one building, vendors and classes ~ LOVE IT!!

  4. great finds-love the look of that pattern

    i LOVE the bobbin genies!

  5. Glad you had a good time. I was the on THursday with my guild on a bus trip. Wish I had known you were looking for the slider thingy... i bought it last year and haven't been really impressed with it. My quilts don't 'slide' like I think they should.... maybe its just me LOL

    Quilty Hugs!

  6. Sounds great to me! I am just a beginner in this quilting thing but loving it. I am doing the quilt along and am way behind but I started late.

  7. Sounds like you had a lot of fun. Great purchases!!
