Airing of the Quilts/September Hop Winner


You couldn't ask for the weather to be nicer.  It was in the 70's (we've had some really cold days of late).  Although the wind did blow all day, it made things flutter and dance for the occassion.



Just some of the smaller quilts were hung outside because of the winds.



Yup, a blurr in the wind - we did have to go un-wrap them a couple of times, but none came down or blew to the neighbors.



Thank you Stef for sending me some of your photos - the whole line...



and she braved my very steep front hill to snap the ones on this porch.



And since we weren't able to get out to catch the 'airing', she sent a photo of the quilts she had displayed in her yard. Isn't that a pretty setting?  Look at the color coming in the tree!

WINNER

The winner of my 'See You in September' gingham give away is:

You are so prolific - I couldn't accomplish that much in a whole year and you did it in a summer. The quilt is wonderful with all the camping images. I loved the backing to go with it and the ditty bag, and pillow were just perfect.
I will contact her for mailing information and thank you all for visiting and commenting.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  5. It's still HOT here in OK. It's nice to see green grass. Even here in what is known as Green Country, it seems the grass is still fairly brown unless you own the water company. The beautiful green grass and the turning trees along with the brick house trimmed in a beautiful gray make beautiful backdrops for amazing quilts.
