Saturday was National Quilt Day
and friend Nancy stopped by last week
with some of her quilts
for a "Show and Tell".
Of course, when anyone drops by Linderhof,
we always put the kettle on.
Nancy suggested that one of her quilts would make the
And she was right!
It's called a "Random Access" quilt
and the lovely blues picked up the blue in the transfer ware.
I had just made some Italian Easter Wreath Cookies
(from the King Arthur Flour Catalogue)
and they were the perfect nosh with afternoon tea.
A plate of cookies
A pot of tea
And a friend to share them with!
Life isn't any better than that!
Besides the Random Access quilt, Nancy also brought two others.
A Downton Abbey Dowager Quilt (pieced but not quilted) for she knew I was a Downton Abbey fan
And this, an original quilt
Based on the tiles she saw on a trip to Italy.
What a wonderful remembrance of a trip!
We visited, talked quilts and quilting, nibbled and sipped.
Soon the afternoon was gone and we bid goodbye!
