Another Garden Quilt Show

Remember this day? (I know. It’s the day I was kind of being a drama queen.)
Well I’m finally posting the pictures I took of the quilt show.
The quilt on the far left is one of mine.
Another wonderful yard. Lots of adorable details in the yard itself.

Wouldn’t you love a vintage stove with colorful watering cans in your yard?
And here are the quilts. Lots of great ones.
Most of these quilts were made by ladies in a quilt group that my mom is a part of.
(Although she hijacked a few of mine, so there may have been other usurpers.)
I love this little vintage cowboy quilt.

This quilt was started by my mom on September 11, 2001. She’d been planning it for a while and during that day of needing something comforting to occupy her hands and mind, she started working. This comes from a pattern by Peggy Waltman. I’m not sure if it’s still available or not.

I made the sunflower quilt in the background. It’s one of my favorites.

Repro-vintage aprons made my mom. Cute, huh?
(Can you see where I get my fabric/sewing love?)
The pink quilt on the left is one that I designed for American Quilting last winter.
I also cut all the kits for it, so it was fun to see one someone had put together.

And there you have it. Lovely, right?
