Fall Quilter's Garden

I have long desired to visit Sisters, Oregon for the outdoor quilt show but the timing just hasn't worked out.  So, instead each fall and spring I host a Quilter's Garden at my home.  Our theme for Fall 2009 was Christmas Quilts.  How exciting to see new quilts and old favorites all hanging together! We have a great time visiting with each other and exploring the quilts and patterns everyone brings.  We hang quilts from the trees, over the fences and benches, and in the gazebo.
These are a couple of my own quilts- a Million Squares Christmas quilt with "Dear Santa" and "Merry Christmas" words pieced in the borders and a Santa applique quilt from long ago.
Also mine, a large Christmas thimble quilt for my favorite cousin (technically it's a Tumbler quilt since they are 4" tall instead of 2" or smaller)  The quilt on the right is an amazing redwork stitchery quilt by Maudie!

We always have a wonderful day together and leave inspired to start a new quilt!
