Quilting in the Garden
I was fortunate enough to have been asked to teach at Quilting in the Garden in Livermore, California this year which is held at the Alden Lane Nursery. What an amazing place. There are some places you go that just feel "good" and this was definitely over and above that. The nursery setting is amongst these amazing huge oak trees which provide an almost sanctuary type of atmosphere. There are little surprises tucked away at every turn and every time you turn around you find something else. The show is actually held on Saturday and Sunday and starting very early each morning a dedicated crew of volunteers starts hanging the quilts from cables that are tucked in the oak trees. I just walked around with my camera clicking and ooohing and aaahing at all the amazing quilts. If you are ever thinking of coming to this show I highly recommend it! Bring friends, your camera and your checkbook!
