Shipshewana Quilt Fest 2015

Posted on

I attended the 2015 Shipshewana Quilt Fest once again and Scott was able to go with me this time. The grandparents watched Madison so we had a few days away which we needed so bad! The Quilt Fest was fantastic as always and Scott kept himself busy either working or looking at motorcycles – this time a HARLEY. I’m afraid it may have bitten him because he took it for a test drive and I can say he’s pretty obsessed with it right now!

It was raining when we got there early Thursday morning and I stood in line for Schoolhouse in the rain along with several hundred other crazy women. Once we got inside it was a lot of fun. I took quite a few sessions and of course the lunch they fed us was yummy.

I took a class from Pam Holland on Friday. The class used fabric markers and we traced a design, then colored it with the markers and then quilted it. Mine isn’t finished (ahead more than the picture) but it was a lot of fun. Definitely out of my comfort zone but fun.




We also went to the quilt show as well as participated in the shop hop. I love driving around the country there. never get tired of seeing the beautiful countryside.



I got to sew on this beauty during class.

We got to sit inside the buggy at Essenhaus! As many times as we have eaten there this is the FIRST time we have been able to sit in the buggy. It was fun!!



Yoders added a quilt square to the side of their building this year.



Scott test rode a Harley while I was out quilting – I am afraid what might happen now!
