Garden Tea Party

This week while visiting a quilting shop to purchase yardage for a cabin wall-quilt I came across a book that was so enchanting. I simply had to purchase it, as it was called Garden Tea Party and contains patterns for several small quilts with a tea theme. Doesn't the cover just draw you in? I love the details in the picture from the towel over the server's arm to the pink flip-flops on the smallest girls feet. What could be better than tea in a garden with cherished loved ones? Inside the front cover is an invitation that says: "You are invited to join us for a Garden Tea Party. Bring a quilt for show and tell, and wear your favorite hat." Isn't that a sweet idea for a tea party?


  1. I love all of your pictures. They are the epitome of gentility. Your dad is such a trouper! Kudos to him for having fun.

    I love that the little girls look like little girls and are doing things little girl should be doing and not looking like miniaturized women ready for a night on the town.
