 Saturday I went to Corvallis, Oregon (50 miles from my home) to the quilt show "Quilts in the Garden."  It was at 5 different gardens in a neighborhood.  Between the beautiful gardens and the beautiful quilts, it was a delight!

The pictures will tell it all:

One of the first quilts that I saw - very apropos to have in a garden.

The pictures so far were taken in the first garden and it was amazing!! 

This one is for Love - it's made of vintage linens.

Another one made out of vintage linens.

It was a beautiful, cool day and it didn't start raining until I was on the way home.  I got a new Country Register there and see some other quilt shows coming up!!

Have you been to a quilt show lately?

Some Quilts for the Cultural Center

 My quilt guild, Gone to Pieces, has been invited to present a display of our quilts at the Cultural Center in Lincoln City, Oregon beginning in late August through October, so I have been trying to get some quilts ready for this.  Here are a couple table runners that I just made to hang there.  These measure at 12" x 57" and the falling leaves measures at 12" x 44".

I will also submit these 2 larger quilts:

Spider quilt

Pineapple 9-patch

Just finished quilting and binding the string quilt that I showed in the last post.  The colors don't show up very well in the first picture, but you can see them better in the close up picture.  I quilted it with swirls using grey thread.

Thanks for visiting!  We are having more rain this weekend.  Again.  But I'm happy it isn't real hot and I don't have to water my seeds!!  I also planted a tomato plant.  Unfortunately, I don't take after my Dad and his green thumb, so we'll see if I get any tomatoes and flowers from the seeds.
