I was lucky enough to get the chance to attend a beautiful outdoor quilt show at Alden Lane Nursery
in Livermore just this last Sunday.
The spreading oak trees were so beautiful, I almost was more interested in them than the quilts.
The quilts were waving in the slight afternoon breeze, it was about 95F, so it was okay even if it was harder to take pictures.
There was a nice mix of modern and traditional quilts.
A lot of the quilts were much too high up to actually see very well though.
I think this was the first outdoor quilt show I've ever attended and I really liked the combination of being outside and getting to see quilts.
I went a little gaga over the color-sorted glazed ceramic pot display.
Seriously, I was glad I wasn't shopping for garden stuff or I would have come home with a car full of these colorful pots even though I don't need them. That and the plant selection which was terrific. Dangerous place for a gardener's wallet!
The quilting really shows up well on this quilt thanks to the afternoon lighting.
Some of the quilts were highlighted when the sun shone right through them.
It was a great day to meet up with quilting friends and stroll around together looking at the great display. Definitely worth the drive and I hope they have the show next year.
