Hello Monday! Did you have a good weekend? Lovely weekend here, it was Quilting in the Garden weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect. The good weather, the excellent quilts and the wonderful people. Saturday I had a great time helping out Alex for about an hour, then wandering the show with friends Deb and Keiko. Sunday I met up with Deb and Debbie and we had coffee, then Debbie and I walked around the show again. I ran into a bunch of fun people that I've missed seeing for a while. Sandy Klop was this years featured artist. Sandy doesn't shy away from a challenge to say the very least. She's so sweet and funny and kind and humble and she's a huge talent. We're lucky here in the bay area to have so many amazing quilters. So here's a ton of photos. I'm sure if you try Little Bluebell and Sew'n Wild Oaks over the next couple of days you'll see some good photos of the event as well. If you went and posted pictures leave your info in the comments...
Sandy, super adorable, always laughing and enjoying herself!
True story. Deb, Keiko and I were looking at that basket quilt, Sandy's Plaid Baskets. I love it. And I said (you loud) 'that one is totally doable, look how big those baskets are". Then the next looking at the photo and that amazing leaf border I just burst out laughing. Sometimes I'm ridiculous.
Pam Kitty Morning siting in this quilt! Made my day.
In the fall Alden Lane has heirloom apples grown in Sebastopol. Sleeping Beauty were my favorite this year. Super delicious.
Keiko, couldn't be cuter! She teaches at Prairie Queens Quilt Shop in San Jose.
Alex, always chatting it up. I'm excited to attend the Market Basket class with her tomorrow. I'm sure we'll be separated by the end of the first hour.
One of my favorites, by Sandy.
It's a lovely venue, and I look forward to it next year!
Ok, tomorrow I'm off to my quilt class so I'll see you back here Wednesday! xo
