Yup…Its that time of year again! Apples, pumpkins and quilts are back again! Talented quilters gather and feature the fruits of their labor at some of the loveliest venues nearby!2010 Autumn Quilts 018

Between us and Bucks County, Pa. there are numerous Quilt expositions happening throughout the next few weeks…so let me tell you the where, when. and how!

The 10th Annual Bucks County Quilt Showcase – through September 22, featuring quilts of various types shown at the Bucks County Visitors Center, 3207 Street Road in Bensalem, Pa.

The Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza takes place through September 21 and exhibits over 600 quilts!  200 vendors sell completed quilts, quilting supplies and related items.  The address is The Philly Expo Center, 100 Station Avenue in Oaks, Pa.

Quiltfest 2014 is held in Point Pleasant, NJ on September 20, from 9am to 5pm and features 100 locally handmade quilts by folks in that area.  Presented by the Jersey Shore Quilters, this exposition takes place at the Good Shepard Lutheran Church at 708 Ocean Road, Point Pleasant, NJ.2010 Autumn Quilts 003

Quilts in the Mill at nearby Prallsville Mill in Stockton runs an entire weekend, beginning October 3, and ends on October 5.  The Courthouse Quilters host this event at the Mill every-other year and it is a must do every other year for me!  The beauty of the venue and the diversity of the quilts that these ladies create, make it a wonderful way to spend an early autumn day!  Admission is $7.00 and the hours are 10am-5pm each day of the exhibit.  There are quilts, food demos and vendors…even drawings for door prizes and quilt contests.  DO plan to attend this if you are a quilt-enthusiast.

Aside from quilt-fests, apple + pumpkin picking is great nearby the inn too…so check back in a few weeks and we’ll tell you about the best farms for apple + pumpkin picking!  Inn the meantime, have an awesome Autumn!
