Quilts in the Trees

On Saturday I went off on an adventure with Jennifer and her girls to Quilting In The Garden at Alden Lane Nursery. I had heard fabulous things about this event, but wanted to see it with my own eyes. I was so impressed by what good travel companions Bethany and Rachel were. And Jennifer and I gabbed the whole way there and back. This sweet cottage is what greeted us in the parking lot.As we got closer, I could start to see quilts hanging from the trees already! Bethany, Me, and Rachel. They had their Amelia Bedelia/Aunt Maggie hats on!
All throughout the gardens they had these cool photo op boards! Bethany did a great job taking this picture for us!
They had a mini class on aplique quilting in one of the side buildings.

We ran into these cool crafters too! (Not physically cool because it was a smokin 103 degrees or so that day. Yes, we guzzled lemonade!)Mark and Cindy with Around the Block Designs. So cute!
Check out these two peas in a pod!
I loved this clever idea for plants...put them in gutters!
These two are too old to be found in a nursery!
We got to meet the Michael Jordan of quilting: Alex Anderson! Ya think we like Around the Block designs? Check out all of our necklaces!
On our way out I noticed this creative planter! Its a bathtub! And someone cleverly attatched these little clear stones to the edges to look like bubbles! Rub a dub dub! Somehow I dont think anyone would come out of this tub cleaner...
