The AQS Lancaster show is hosted this year March 24-27th at the Lancaster County (PA) Convention Center.  This is the 1st annual show and promises to be quite smashing with wonderfully selected quilts.

From Ms. Cheney:


This is the second quilt I have made with the generous donation of fabric from Island Batik, Inc. The first one was Dandelion Wine (HMD-102) which was displayed in their Spring Market 09 booth and then was published in the Oct/Nov 09 issue of Mark Lipinski’s Quilter’s Home Magazine.  (He saw it at the booth)

I designed and made Driftwood in time to display at Island Batik’s  Fall Market ’09 booth.

It currently hangs on my family room wall.

This is my third quilt in an AQS show.  The first was Treasure Chest (HMD-103) that hung in Nashville in 2005.  Treasure Chest then traveled with the Quilts, Inc. sponsored In The American Tradition V exhibit and then was published in Quilters Newsletter (Nov ’07) after being spotted in Houston.
