I Went to a Garden Party. . .

Everyone was there. . .

No one recognized me. . .

Because I wore a hat upon my hair.

It’s called, work in the garden till two,  jump in the tub, fix dinner, throw on a hat to hide the hair, and go.

Posing by my Prairie Paisley quilt I made July 2010.  I love Red, White, and Blue.  This is one of my favorite quilts.

One of our local quilt stores, American Quilting threw this garden party. It was held in the owners garden.

Everyone was invited to bring a couple of quilts to display.

It was such a fun night with ice cream sundaes as a treat.

There were so many wonderful quilts.

This cute ant applique quilt was made by my sister, Jeanne.

Now these are just the ones in the front yard.  Seriously, we haven’t even made it out back yet.

My computer is acting up and won’t let me post anymore pics. 

Guess it’s saying, “Really lady, enough is enough”.

I reckon you’ll all have to come back to get the rest of the story, or I mean party.

All I can say is, there’s a whole bunch more darling quilts to show you.

Hope you come back!

Oh my, your quilt is stunning and so are the others. I made a couple of quilts years ago. So much work. After that I just did a few quilt blocks to frame. lol

Thanks for the visit and the gracious comment. You asked if you need to seal your granite first before you use the Granite Gold. No, it is a sealer and polish all in one. Just clean it well, and then make sure it is dry. Just spray and polish. Love this stuff. Hugs, Marty

Oh my goodness...what a FABULOUS idea, Jann!!! I just loved seeing everyone's creation. I am in love with this idea & may just copy it for a party here at The Gazebo House. We have similar white railings all around the deck & could easily display quilts draped over them. Wouldn't my neighbors be jealous???

I am SEW glad I stopped over today. Your red & white & blue quilt is just awesome!

Hugs,
Rett

Those quilts are fabulous!! My sister makes quilts, and I'm going to send her on over to check them out. I think it is such a talent when one knows how to sew.

WOW! What amazing talent!! I used to be in quilt guild when I lived in the north (they don't have one here). This made me homesick for my old guild. It is always so fun to see all the creations. THANK YOU for sharing.
