Decorating seasonally with Quilts

Tomorrow I'm heading out on a little adventure here in Iowa.  I'll be giving a trunk show presentation titled, Decorating Seasonally with Quilts, at Clear Lake, way up in northern Iowa.  The program is tomorrow evening at their city hall at 7:00, I'm sure they wouldn't mind if anyone wants to come visit.  The picture above is the next season I'll be decorating for; red, white and blue, whoo hoo!

On the way up and back to Clear Lake, I'm planning on going on my own little shop hop in Iowa.  I have scoped out the shops that are going to be on the All Iowa Shop Hop, June 1-14th and I'm planning on trying to go to 19 of them in 2 days.  I won't be able to go on the shop hop myself, since I'm one the 80 shops on the shop hop, so I thought I'd try to hit a few before and let people know about my $25 a night spring special AND my open house/quilt/garden show during the shop hop.  I still have beds available, so give me a call...712-523-3508. 

My gardens should be doing great by then, so stop by and take a look around at quilts inside and out and see my retreat.  Above is a picture from a couple years ago of my hosta garden, under my deck.  It is just outside the main sewing room and is beautiful to look out to on a hot summer day.

I'll try to take lots of pictures on my little trip and give an update when I get back home.


  1. Have a wonderful trip!! Look forward to the pictures!! xo Heather
