Quilting in the Garden 2014

What a scrumptious day at Alden Lane Nursery to see their annual “Quilting in The Garden” show.  Beautiful quilts hanging all over their vast property amongst the flowers and trees, all blowing in the wind!

First some shots of the whole scene and then we’ll zero in on a few quilts (only a fraction unfortunately!).  Photography a little challenging as one is looking up taking photos against a sunny sky, so we’ll show you what we can, and enjoy the dappled light. If you’re in the area, don’t miss this event next year!

Featured artists this year were local celebrities Diana McClun and Laura Nownes, and from Oregon, Jean Wells and the Quilt of Sisters.  There were also quilts by local quilters, some with booths. There certainly were beautiful quilts everywhere.  Kind of dreamy! Take a gander….

  3. I loved seeing your quilt show. Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph, then blog about these–so terrific! I’m a big fan of McClun and Nownes so it’s great to see all their quilts hanging so beautifully in a garden. And there were so many others I loved as well. Thank you!
