If you are plan to attend the quilt show, Quilting in the Garden this weekend, (Sept. 28-29) in Livermore, CA – you are in for a treat!
Laura and I have quilts that will be part of a very special exhibit. The exhibit celebrates the work of a creative group of women that we are part of, Grateful Threads. We meet weekly to share, inspire and support our “quilty” habit. We chat, we sew, but mostly we embrace a passion for textiles and creativity.
The past two years we have had Rosalie Dace, quilt artist extraordinaire and inspiring teacher, visit our group for workshops. The quilts in the exhibit are from these two workshops. One of the workshops focused on trees, which seems perfectly appropriate for Quilting in the Garden, that feature beautiful, old California Oaks throughout the venue.
Here are a few snippets of the quilts that Laura and I will have in the exhibits. Just a teaser, to peak your interest. I will post the entire exhibit next week.

Have a fabulous weekend!
