Garden Party

For the past 4 years, we have had a garden party in our yard. We have people show the quilts they have been working on. Good company, inspiration, music, and ice cream sundaes! This year was no exception. We had some beautiful quilts and the weather cooperated perfectly. Thanks to those who shared.

Here are some snap shots.

That looks like a beautiful backyard party. I am a lone quilter now that I moved from Utah to Florida.....I made Lori Holt's "Thanksgiving" quilt. Where do you live in Utah, and wher is American Quilting located? I can stop by on my next visit.

I love this idea and you have such amazing talent on display. I must admit I love the reindeer one best. My son collects Rudolph's and he's leaving on a mission in December. I'd love to know what this pattern is bz I could make it while he's gone and surprise him completely with in two years on Christmas when he comes home! He'd love it. If you could help me out on that I'd appreciate it! Cindy
