Quilts and great weather - perfect together!

Today was the first day of the Quilt and Garden Festival at the Pearl S. Buck House in Perkasie, PA. The event coincided with Pearl Buck's 120th birthday which was celebrated today with a special ceremony and Coconut Cake, one of her favorites.

The quilts certainly did not disappoint. If you are in the area, you still have two more days, Wednesday and Thursday, to stop in to enjoy the quilts. In addition to the quilts, there are demonstrations, guided tours of the house and gardens and terrific raffle baskets to win.

Notice the beach picture with sand and water.

 And very appropriately, flowers and the weeds that seem always to be there.

Notice the little beach scene with hydrangeas on the bottom quilt.

 The raffle baskets are waiting for you.

 Not there when I took the picture, but the table pictured above was for our visiting authors.

 Berries, anyone?

 Color and patterns.

 Fish in the ocean.
Embroidery, wonderful!

I hope we will see you at the show. You won't be disappointed!


  1. Thanks for showing all those beautiful pictures! I was at the show and enjoyed the quilts so much. It is well worth the effort to get there as the grounds are also so lovely right now. Thanks again.

  2. I love quilts and have many vintage ones that came from both sides of our family. I've always been drawn to the patterns and colors! If you read my blog very often...you will quickly learn that I don't sew a stitch, button replacement is a challenge for me!!

    Have a great time at your reunion. We had a 30th, but it was poorly planned and I didn't go (nor did anyone else), so the last one that was a real reunion was 20 years ago. I knew I'd have a good time, I just didn't expect it to be so much fun!
