Back on Track

This is "F-4 Old Windmill", another easy one. Again, most of my time was spent selecting fabrics. A trip to Verna's Fabrics down in Mifflinburg a couple of weeks ago provided me with about 28 more 1/4-yard cuts of batiks to use. If you've never been down there, you must go -- she has loads of fabric at wonderful prices. I've never seen such a large collection of pre-quilted fabric in one shop before.
On our trip down there, my quilting friends and I also stopped at a fabulous farmers' market in Lewisburg (on the way to Mifflinburg). Lots of fresh vegetables and fruits along with flowers and yummy food. Sticky buns and pies made by local Mennonite and Amish bakers. On the way, we had a delight for our eyes as we saw many Amish buggys coming home from market. We all agreed that we must always plan our trips for Wednesdays since that is the only day of the week that the market is open. And we plan to get there earlier next time in order to get the best selection of pies. By lunchtime, many of them had been sold out!
