Outdoor Quilt Festival....

Ok so I ventured out to a farm here in Ohio...... for the Outdoor Quilt Festival.I had a good reason....Rachel from p.s. i quilt....she and I met there...for the first time. It was a great time....a bit drizzley...rainy but still good company will help you forget minor inconviences.Here she is next to her Christmas tabletopper quilt... And here is her Pinwheel Sampler quilt...it is stunning in person...I wanted to take it home..for real.

This is her Scruffily quilt...and I sooooo want to make one of these..and she made it with Hushabye..I ♥ that fabric line.


Then I just took tons of pictures...it was overcast and humid so the pictures of mine have a haze..still I decided to share some of my favorites.








Oh is that the sun? I think it did peek out for a bit...


I love this barn with the blue and white quilts..stunning presentation.
Here's the little gift Rachel brought me...a little bowtie quilt kit..I LOVE 1930's fabrics...
She's so thoughtful...
all in all it was a fab day.

I would have loved to hang out with you and Rachel! Looks like so much fun and like I told Rachel on her blog post I absolutely love that they hung the quilts outside. What a beautiful way to present quilts, for sure! Have an awesome day!

I loved seeing the quilt show through both you and Rachel. I missed two of our outdoor quilt shows this year (Pomeroy & Sisters), so extra fun to see your pics!
