Gone Walkabout...

This blog was going to be about my travels and impressions I had from them. But my attention span went walkabout. And like with any good walkabout I discovered unexpected things. I invite you to come explore with me...

Amish Quilt Auction

East of Clarksville, in Kentucky is a fairly large Amish and Mennonite community. And there is an auction barn where they sell seasonal produce and on certain Saturdays have "special" auctions.

Today was the Quilt and Crafts auction. Brenda and I made sure we were there! Not many crafts were auctioned... a few rag dolls and teddy bears, some wood crafts and such. But there had to have been nearly 200 quilts. WOW! If I'd been in the market for a quilt, today would have been the day to get it. Outside of a few truly incredible ones, most quilts went for between $175 and $250. They were just beautiful.

Since "a picture is worth a thousand words"... enjoy the photos I took of the quilts!
