Amish Quilt Auction

The weekend before last, I was able to visit Amish country in Shipshewana, Indiana.  That Saturday was the Spring Honeyville Amish Quilt Auction.  Wow - what an experience that was. I really enjoyed seeing an actual auction and viewing the majority of the quilts available.  I say "majority" because I had a little mishap on the Interstate that morning getting to the Auction in the form of a flat tire.  A flat tire I could not change myself because the car jack that is supplied with my vehicle is a piece of garbage!  LOL  I ended up contacting a towing service (read between the lines here - this added an extra hour and a half to my delay) and they came to my rescue.  So - I was late - very late in getting to the auction.

All in all, it was a fun day. The quilts were gorgeous, but the winning bids on everything I saw were way to low for the quality of the quilts.  That was a little sad.

I visited Lolly's and Yoder's quilt shops while there and some of the other stores too.  Enjoy the slide show of a few of the quilts from the auction below!
