We arrived in town early enough on Saturday to see the yearly hanging of the quilts on the side of the Stitchin' Post by the town Firemen! It gives you an idea of how warm it was when you see a firement up a ladder wearing shorts! At least he wasn't putting out a fire!
Anne had to leave before the quilted car arrived! I hope you're seeing this, Anne! If I understand correctly, the pieces were made by several quilters and they are all attached to each other with velcro to cover the car completely! This was quite the sight! I wish I had time to edit all of the quilt photos, but if I did I would be at it for days and you would have to wait to see them! You should be able to click on each photo for a better view, though!
I love the star quilt below!
We saw this section toward the end of our day - she is a quilter in her 80's and still going strong. The detail is amazing!
Love this photo below from Mr. Squash - if you could have seen Cindy's face, she had the same expression as Anne and I - where to go now?? By the way, Cindy made that wonderful backpack just for the show!
Two peas in a pod below!
Check out this little dog in her carrier below! Don't you just love it?
Mr. Squash got this close-up of a gorgeous appliqued quilt!
That's all for today. If you thought this was great, wait until you see what I've got for tomorrow!
Since we arrived home I've been working on damage control out in the yard! We had 95-100 degree heat while we were gone and I guess I should have set the irrigation system to run a bit longer - live and learn! I lost all my herbs and a few flowers and there are also a few spots in the lawn that could have gotten more water. The raised beds and the rest of the veggies are OK, though - whew! Oh - and the weeds? They seem to love not being watered because they're everywhere!!
