In addition to the American Quilters' Society show at the Convention Center, I spent some time at the nearby Lancaster Quilt and Textile Museum to see a wonderful collection of Amish quilts. It was a spectacular display and I'm so glad I went. I was happy to pay my admission fee to help preserve these treasures.
Sadly, the museum is closing after this exhibit. Read more about that here. It's a shame that my state's governor feels it's OK to give tax breaks to the natural-gas companies while cutting funding for arts and education.
Off my soapbox....Here are a couple of shots that I took inside the museum. The pictures are nice, but it was a glorious thing to see in person.
