Quilt show time this morning over your morning coffee. Quilting in the Garden was this weekend and I think it was the best one ever! (I say that every year.....but this one was amazing.) One of the featured artists was Judy Mathieson.
Judy has a very distinct style which is mind boggling.
The quilts are all displayed from 100 year old oak trees and gently sway in the breeze. The weather was perfect, no rain and it wasn't 104 degrees!
Now that's a lot of flying geese.
Many quilters enter their quilts into the show from all around the area.
This show is great for my double chin since I'm always looking up!
I started my Saturday early to help with set up at the show, then we headed over to the sports park for our grandson's baseball-themed 5th birthday party.
Auntie Caren made some of the treats. This was such a cute idea and they tasted good too!
After the party, I zipped back to the quilt show so Gail could see the quilts. Then Mr. Joe and I headed to Patterson to watch our granddaughter cheer at the Pop Warner football game. It was a full day full of quilts and good family fun.
Sunday I worked at the shop and had the opportunity to meet lots of quilter's that came to town from all over the state. It was a great weekend.
I'm off to the shop this morning to help put everything away that was in the booth at the show. Then I'm sure my to-do list will include getting ready for the next show, Pacific International Quilt Festival in October. That show also is a must see.
Attending a quilt show is so inspirational, colorful and just plain makes me happy. I appreciate all of the workmanship and the hours upon hours that it takes to make a quilt. This is quilt show season, so get out, get involved and support your local quilt guilds by attending a show.....it will make you happy too.
