|Alex Anderson's gorgeous quilts|
While I was still new to quilting, Alex's Simply Quilts show on HGTV was my only quilting community. She and her featured guest quilters provided so much inspiration, introduction to new techniques and tools and motivation to keep quilting. So her presentation was a real treat!

We also got a preview of the featured artist, Judy Mathieson and her gorgeous compass star quilts. Of course after the presentations, I rushed over to meet both quilters, armed with a sharpie marker and copies of their books for signing.
We returned to Alden Lane Nursery the next day for the quilt show. The nursery provided a beautiful backdrop for the 250+ quilts displayed in their centuries old oak trees, along the exteriors of buildings, inside their greenhouse and even over an antique wagon! There was just so much eye candy to absorb...all you had to do was look up.
