Taking the quilt for a walk

At last, I got to the local Botanic Gardens this morning, to take some photos of the 'quilt made in a week'. Thankfully, the gardens were quiet and there was no-one around much to notice the mad woman traipsing about with a quilt over her shoulder.
I said I'd try to drape it artistically over a tree branch ...
... or perhaps flat out on the lawn ...
or strewn upon a park bench?
The fabrics are mostly Amy Butler's 'Temple Flowers', a little bit of Heather Bailey's 'Freshcut', and a little 'Summer in the City' by Urban Chiks. The pattern is 'Le Jardin' by Lynne Wilson, Threads of Time. How pretty is this magnolia? And it matches so perfectly with the quilt! Oooh, & there is a gorgeous dogwood in flower over there ... at this point, I got completely distracted by beautiful blooms & went about wandering. Tra-la-la-la-la! Photos undoubtedly will follow!

  3. Gorgeous setting for photographs of a wonderful quilt!! The flower in the last photo is absolutely wonderful to see -- as we go into fall/winter it's nice to know there's summer somewhere!!
