|The Virginia Quilt Museum|
Our next stop was Patchwork Plus, which claims to be the largest quilt store in Virginia. I picked up a couple of fabrics from the sale table, as well as a sweet little strawberry print that I just couldn't resist. I have a thing for strawberry fabric.

Since I hadn't gotten enough of antique quilts from the quilt museum, I made sure to pay special attention to the quilts at the antique stores, plus, they didn't mind if I took pictures! The best over-all selection came from my favorite antique mall of all time, The Strasburg Emporium. I literally grew up shopping there and they always have wonderful things to look at.

|This quilt had hundreds of these little hand-embroidered campfires. What is that about?|
|This antique signature quilt baffled me. What were all the signatures for?|
But, my favorite two quilts of the day were found at Vilnis Antiques, also in Strasburg. The fist is attributed to the Mennonites of SE Pennsylvania and dates somewhere between 1880-1920 (this, according the tag attached to it!). I just adore the colors of this quilt. ADORE!!!
