Quilt Raising!
It’s been a wonderful weekend at Quilting in the Garden! Everyone’s quilts look magnificent hanging from the huge oak trees. I was able to meet and talk with local quilt makers and enjoy the beauty of Alden Lane Nursery all at the same time.
 Here’s my crew after using clothes pins to secure the quilts to the lines. Volunteer members from local guilds were there bright and early, 7:00 a.m.! Thank you!

And here’s an overview of the Alden Lane Nursery layout. It’s like visiting a park with fountains, garden vignettes, and lots of color. And the people working there are really wonderful.

Alden Lane Nursery is Fantastic!
As you enter, you are greeted with tables of color and texture laid out in a circular plan. Cyndee and Jacque have decorated the walkways with cute displays like window boxes, benches, and a kid’s tree house hidden in the bend of the old oak trees that shade the grounds.

My class of 20 students made their own gardens in the Garden of Eden workshop on Thursday. They created beautiful displays of flowers and leaves in fabric, no doubt influenced by the beautiful garden setting surrounding them.

Early Saturday morning, my quilts will be suspended from the wonderful oaks that protect this joyful place. What a delight to be a Guest Artist in Quilting in the Garden!

Quilting in the Garden with Old Friends
In selecting the artwork for Quilting in the Garden, I was able to re-visit some old friends. The 35 quilts on display range in age from 2 months to 15 years old. It’s like reviewing different stages of my art. I was surprised to find how many pieces relate to the theme of gardening and growing. It must be those farmer’s daughter genes.
If you can’t visit me at the exhibit, you can see me on The Quilt Show. They are kindly offering the episode I filmed for them for free. Click here for #303. I’ve also prepared a CD of the Quilting in the Garden exhibit available on my web site. It shows all the images of those quilts soon to be hanging from trees!
