So I went downstairs to the fabric store and bought $22 worth of hand dyed wool felt that you see here. Someone's gonna have one helluva piece of art on the walls!

Lancaster County, PA
On Saturday, we--and everyone else in southeastern Pennsylvania--headed out on Route 30 to visit the Amish. We went to Intercourse (you just have to) and visited the People's Museum to see the quilts. Then we looked around the gift shop. There was a lovely piece (squares of wool felt--half inch piled on one inch--and topped with a button) framed, on sale for (hold on to your hats) $895. All it is is squares stitched to a ground fabric through the button--no piecing, no quilting, just a one inch squares topped with a half inch square topped with a button and sewn to a ground fabric. Ten across and ten down, or so. Slapped in a shadow box frame. Eight hundred ninety five dollars.
