Garden/Studio Tour Day

We were one of the stops on the Garden Tour organized by the Genesee Valley Quilt Club to support the Club's Scholarship Fund.

Bill, with his Club-supplied pink-ribboned name tag, is gathering the first group for a guided tour of his many gardens.

Priscilla Kibbee came to help greet the studio visitors, and had some time to work on a new "orange" jacket. Her latest quilt that she started in Pat Pauly's class is on the cutting table in the foreground.

The old studio was used to display several contemporary quilts, along with two traditional quilts that my mother made in 1934.

The corner was used to show the first "Jet Trails" (on the left) and "Blocks", which will be at Art Quilts 2008 at the Brush Gallery in Lowell, MA.

On the design walls we showed quilts from the Blocks and Jet Trails series, along with some work in process.

The picture doesn't do them justice, but we also showed jackets and a vest made in Priscilla's classes and from materials she collected on her international travels.

Wonderful quilt photos... and the garden, WOW. I don't know which I envy more... studio space or garden space. Both look well loved and appreciated. But I would so like to be part of your quilty group that meets in that wonderful space!
