Quilting in the Garden runs September 22 & 23 at Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore, CA.

The annual show has been running for over 20 years, and it gets better each time. Plan on spending all day, as there will be so much to see, starting off with 300 quilts! If you've never attended before, it is quite a sight to see these textile beauties hanging from gorgeous, enormous oak trees. If you've been before, you know what a treat it is!

The Featured Guest this year is Eleanor Burns!

She has been impressing and influencing the quilting world for more than 40 years. Her captivating quilts and innovative, time saving techniques have kept her at the forefront of the industry, and she never slows down!  As an aside, her Friday class is filled, but she is also going to teach on Thursday (call 925-447-0280 for your reservation).

Additional exhibits include the work of California Art Quilter Gail Sims. You will find her beautiful and diverse work in the Greenhouse.

Leni Levenson Wiener is sharing her extraordinary exhibit all the way from New York! She knocked our socks off in Show 2204: The Human Form from Portrait to Art Piece. Her exhibit will also be on display in the Greenhouse.


And if this isn't great enough, the Out of Boxers Friendship group from the Amador Valley Quilt Guild will be sharing its work.  Such GREAT talents all in one place!
Want to take a class from Alex? Get a jump on your holiday gift-making with this appealing wall hanging. Holiday Stars is versatile enough to work in either autumnal colors or Christmas reds and greens (or use your own combo!). You'll learn efficient piecing skills, as well as great fusing and finishing appliqué techniques. It's fast and fun and you'll be well on your way to creating a beautiful new piece before the day is over. Call 925-447-0280 to reserve your class. (Class is Wednesday, Sept. 19, 9-4pm).
Although the show is open on Saturday and Sunday, the quilt classes are offered earlier.

It was Eleanor Burns who first turned me on to quilting with her PBS show, Quilt in a Day over 26 years ago.

Thank you Eleanor!!
