CONSERVATORY COLOR DIVE

I am happy to report I survived my 70th birthday.
My husband bought me a membership + one to 
The Franklin Park Conservatory, here in Columbus, OH

I could show you all the beautiful flowers and Chihuly installations
at this amazing garden...but today
you will see my Anna Marie Horner, Color Dive quilt
made with Alison Glass and Guicie Guice fabrics

It was a perfectly overcast day and I knew the vibrant colors of my
 Quilt in the Wild...would be stunning.

Enjoy the tour!




















Where is your favorite place to photograph you quilts?

SOPHIE IS SUCH A SWEETIE

I actually forgot all about this baby quilt!
I made it for a friend who was gonna be a first time Gramma!

I knew Kim (gramma) likes Winnie the Pooh
and just sew happened, I had some in my stash.

This is the Perfect Ten pattern, by Swirly Girl Designs.


This top is my GO-TO baby quilt pattern.
It's simpler than it looks to make
and uses novelty prints sew well.


And the back was pretty simple.
I couldn't believe I had this polka dot print in my stash.
Let alone, enough for backing!
I always like to use some of the front fabrics in the backing.


Isn't it adorable!


And the baby was born in December of 2020.


Sophie Rose is a darling little girl!

WHERE BEACHY SHOWERS HAPPEN

When I am at the beach...
I make quilts.

When it rains at the beach...
I make quilts

The fabric in this quilt is called
April Showers


I named this quilt, Beachy Showers
for all those reasons.
And the first picture is a photo op
at the Beach Showers...how cool is that!

A BEACHY WONDER

It was a kinda bright day at the beach,
but this baby quilt made with
Kate and Birdie ‘WONDER’ 
Had to be photographed at the BEACH!

The thing is the colors were totally lost
Whe I tried to lay the top on the sandy beach.
Sew this is what I did.


This is a public beach boardwalk entrance.

A private park along the Intercostal Waterway.


And yep...I am a true trespasser! 


Bit I want the pictures I want 



I WONDER if you would bail me out if I am 
ever arrested for BEACHY trespassing?
