Rebecca's shop - Shipshewana

Here, at Rebecca's, the hours can pass without me noticing :-)
Antique quilts, new Amish quilts, quilt blocks, wonderful tree work, homemade jam - all the best from the best, for me (and y0u)  to enjoy.

Rebecca and her father outside the shop. The beautiful sign is his work.

I also had the pleasure of attending Rebecca's speech on Amish quilts, without camera in hand.
I learned a lot about Amish quilts, and am eager to learn more :-)

Hanne,
Isn't this just the greatest shop, with the greatest proprietors? The best of all, to me, is Rebecca's darling mother. She is just the cutest, sweetest thing!

It was so much fun to spend time with you in Shipshewana. I hope you are practicing your back basting! The Hearts and Gizzards quilt is happy at my house...and we are happy to have it! What a beautiful quilt that is.

So many lovely quilts!
I see that you don't have "Followers" on your blog. It might help you to identify people who leave a message on your blog. I follow you via my blog, because I could not do it via yours.
