Quilts on the Lawn

This wasn't a quilt on the lawn but it sure was a cute little quilt made with antique fabric that Laurie made and hung up for us to enjoy. 

 I went to Seattle with my friend, Michelle, on the left, picked up Juliann, on the right, and made our way to Marysville where Laurie (center, in blue) had a quilt show of Anthologie quilts. The weather has been beautiful and hot but all of a sudden the forecast for that one day called for rain! So, she did what any resourceful woman would do, she did not cancel but moved the quilts from the lawn to the garage.
Her property is the perfect setting for a quilt show. I'm going to encourage her to make this a yearly event!
How cute is this little building?

I'm sorry, I do not know the makers of all the anthology quilts. You can get more info on this quilt HERE. I do know Laurie made the adorable ribbons that adorn the quilts.
Laurie's quilt is the one to the left of the bright green one.
She had lovely vignette's to draw us in for a closer look.

I'm a repro girl through and through, but isn't this magnificent!?

This is her sewing studio!! It is just as cute on the inside!
I know Laurie doesn't mind, but I did snap a few photos in her house. It feel so relaxed and charming! I really love it.
Look at this amazing antique quilt!

And seriously, this is the back!Yes, it is pieced!!

I met some lovely ladies and JoAnn from Quilters Coop opened her shop for us which is located close by! Thanks for helping Susan!

These beautifully decorated cookies came about the time we were preparing to leave. So super cute!

Thanks Laurie for sharing the lovely quilts, antiques, and introducing us to your fun friends!!

I hope ya'll are off to a fantastic week!!

  8. What fun Lori! Would Laurie share pattern availability for her little quilt? Love it! Looks like her home and studio are very inspiring! I love all her little sewing machines on display! That antique quilt is quite wonderful! I have visited Quilter's Coop when it was located in Temecula, CA. It was a wonderful shop!

  11. Such fun Lori. Thanks to Laurie for sharing her home and quilts. I bought the book after seeing these blocks pop up on Instagram. I think I have to put that little circle quilt on my to do list. I even spied a Blue Mountain Rendevous on the table.

  21. Wonderful photos, would have been awesome to see these in person. Will keep fingers crossed that the event becomes an annual affair. I'm sure hubby would not mind a little road trip from Northern CA. Thank you so much Lori for sharing.
