I finally got a good picture of the bargello quilt. It goes to it’s new owner tomorrow.
This blog allows me to state my dreams in hope they come true.

Twice a year one of the guild members organizes an all day quilt retreat. We gather at the senior center with our projects and equipment. We bring goodies for a pot luck, set up our equipment and start sewing. As the day progresses… projects get hung up on the design wall…finished and in progress as we all need a better look to make decisions.
I wandered around yesterday peeking at everyone’s project… here are some of the pictures ….. I should warn everyone I try to EDIT / PhotoShop ugly backgrounds out so we can view the subject / quilt project without distraction of ugly backgrounds……………….. ENJOY THE PICS.

Frederik Meijer Garden and Sculpture Park
1000 East Beltline Ave, Grand Rapids MI
I spent the day wandering through the garden and art galleries of Frederik Meijer Garden and Sculpture Park. I have not enjoyed myself as much as I have today in years. My daughter and I took my 2 year old grandson and just wandered around viewing the art works and gardens. I loved viewing everything from the eyes of a child. He was into everything… especially the things he should not touch. We went to a tasting of heirloom tomatoes and I thought he would just spit them out… but he ATE THEM. I could tell which ones he liked and those he disliked. We wandered through the children’s garden playing on the drums, and cymbals. There were dozen of interactive areas we could hardly get him to leave. He poo pooed the fancy art but took delight in small details… bugs, leaves, flowers.
I will be posting more pictures once I get home to my regular computer. I have several pictures that I am planning to use in a quilt project. I spent the afternoon being inspired on several levels. Here are a few pictures to share.
