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?

It really doesn't get much better than looking at quilts in a beautiful garden setting. We were at a show in a huge nursery this weekend. Stunning.
