amish quilt shop outsideA few photos today of a quilt shop at the New Wilmington PA Amish settlement.

The New Wilmington community does not attract a lot of tourists.  But there are a few shops and businesses scattered about the settlement.

Teena’s quilt shop is one that doesn’t mind visitors.  Teena was kind enough to let me take a few photos.

Teena’s quilts were all piled up on the display bed.  For the sake of convenience, I only shot the top quilt.

Does anyone know what this style is called?  Teena told me, but I didn’t quite catch it.  Something with “jello” in the name, it sounded like. Update: That would be “Bargello”; thanks, readers!

Teena sells a variety of other items as well, including candles and post cards (note the warning on the sign: “If you are grouchy, irritable, or just plain mean, there will be a $10 charge just for putting up with you!”).

Teena has been in business for 20 years, and is a pleasure to talk to.  While there, I picked up a copy of a home remedy book, written by her aunt, who is also Amish (Teena noted it was unusual for an Amish woman to write such a book).
