More "Quilts in Bloom!"

I am glad that so many of you are enjoying this visit to Pandora's backyard garden. Some of you may live close enough to attend the event this coming June. When I finish posting the photos from last summer's event, I will give you the info for the "Quilts in Bloom" event for this June. Pandora is also happy that you are enjoying this little diversion from the cold weather. :-)
So here we go.....more quilts.............
Our friend, Sue, made this darling Monkey quilt and the sock monkey in a swing. Too cute, isn't it?!!

I mentioned yesterday that Pandora has a green thumb. Her backyard garden is beautiful and the plants inside her house are, too. I have almost no green thumb so this is heaven on earth when you are in her backyard!
Quilts lined the fence...........

and sometimes there were critters among the plants, too..........

You will see lots of big quilts in the next two posts, but my favorite quilts were these delightful little miniature quilts set among a miniature country scene in a corner of Pandora's garden. You can double-click on any of these photos for close-up views.

I think that little fairies must live in this garden. Can't you see them having a party here?

I can see the fairies dancing across this bridge........

and here's another view of the little quilts corner............

I decided to include a couple of large quilts for you and these were two of my favorites.......

This is a "One Block Wonder" quilt in the photo above and next to it was this beautiful applique quilt.
Everywhere you looked, there were quilts..........even on the trees!

Isn't that purple quilt gorgeous? And look at that green grass and all that bright sunshine!! Soon spring will come. In the meantime, keep sewing and I'll be back tomorrow with more quilts from Pandora's "Quilts in Bloom" show.
Have a good day!
Sandi

Beautiful tour today, Sandi. My daughter will love looking at the mini quilts in fairyland - she has made a fairy garden each summer for 3 years. She's 9 now and I see no end in sight. Guess I should make her a mini quilt for her garden. Looking forward to the big quilts!

These pictures, and this post, are a breath of spring! We are having yet another gray, snow/sleet day and your post has made me smile! Thanks!

Her garden is just gorgeous! I am enjoying your virtual quilt show.

I love the purple quilt too! I bet this was such fun to stroll the lovely grounds and look at quilts.

How lovely to see the quilts and flowers! It must be heaven to live there and always see those flowers. Her garden is probably interesting even in the winter.
Info for pdudgeon: I have gotten to the part where I bought the fabric, but I have to finish some promised projects before even cutting. The step-by-step book that I will use is:
One-block wonders : one fabric, one shape, one-of-a-kind quilts
Rosenthal, Maxine, 1944-
A more advanced version (seen, not read) is:
One-block wonders encore! : new shapes, multiple fabrics, out-of-this-world quilts
Rosenthal, Maxine, 1944-
