Lancaster Quilt & Textile Museum








Mom and I went to the Lancaster Quilt & Textile Museum yesterday. Oh what a beautiful building. And wonderful old Amish quilts. The way they had it setup with information was really nice. We had a wonderful time there. Above was my favorite quilt - I just loved the colors, of course pictures don't capture the real beauty.









They also had an exhibit of hooked rugs. Some were new and some were very old. Many I wish I owned!

Oh my goodness! What an extraordinary place to visit...again and again. And not just for the quilts. Everything is worth a jaw drop.

It's very cool that the walls are painted different colors, isn't it! Not institutionalized feeling at all. Thanks for the great pics, Dawn!

I have been to Lancaster but not to the museum. Wonder if it was there when I was in that area.

I bet there were lots of things you would have liked to come out of there with!

Wowza - that's a lot of eye candy. I love when they make the building as wonderful to look at as the contents of the museum.
