SOLSC Day 30
If you have been reading my posts about the Lancaster Quilt Show over the last two years you might remember that each year featured a challenge put out by Cherrywood fabrics. Two years age it was a Wicked challenge. Last year it was The Lion King.
Well, there was a challenge this year as well. These are the fabrics the quilters were to use.
As you can see, this year was a Van Gough challenge. All quilts had to be the same size.
As you see, there were 120 quilts on display and yes, I did take a picture of all of them. So. for your enjoyment may I present the Van Gough Challenge.
This ends my trip to the quilt show. Oh wait. One more thing. You may have noticed that nowhere over the last several days did I mention food. I’ll bet you were thinking he is finally concentrating on the quilts and not his stomach. Sorry to disappoint you but you would be wrong. So now it is time to eat. After all the walking and looking of course I was hungry. Now since we were there on a Friday during Lent and since I don’t eat meat on Fridays lunch pickings were not plentiful. However, outside the building that housed the vendors there was a truck selling pizza cones. Yes. I did say pizza cones.
The cone was the crust and all the sauce and cheese was inside. It was really good and if they are back next year I will get another. Now on to dinner. After the hectic week we had and after two days at the quilt show I felt that I deserved a really good meal. There is a place in Schaefferstown called the Franklin House.
Kathy and I eat there occasionally on special occasions. I felt this was one. To celebrate the end of the week I treated myself to a chocolate martini.
It went well with my salad with poppy seed dressing.
Main course was apricot crusted cod with rice pilaf and mixed vegetables.
And dessert was a piece of lemon cream cake. For some reason I didn’t take a picture of it, but trust me – it was delicious.
After that it was on to home. Believe me, I was ready.
