Garden Quilt Show

Some pictures of Amy McClellan's annual garden quilt show.

 This quilt was made by Xenia Stirland and just won the recent Riley Blake challenge.
 Here's a close-up. The detail and the quilting on this one were amazing.
 This gorgeous applique was made by Judy Fitzgerald.I love this vintage reproduction quilt made by our friend Pamela of French Knots.
This is a close-up of another one by Pamela. I love it too! It just looks scrappy and old and it's in one of my favorite color schemes. My full-size photo was blurry, but it's fun to look at the fabrics and the detail here.
 Does this one look familiar?

 Love the Chicken Little in Sandy Klop fabrics. This was made by Diana Long.



Love the 3-D detail on this laundry quilt. Pattern for this one here.
Perfect night for some scenery, quilts, and ice cream. 
(I'm sorry I can't share the ice cream part too.)
