A Fence of Quilts

This past Saturday morning I went to a sale at a local quilt shop.  I was surprised to see their driveway fence hung heavy with quilts.  Here are a few photos.

I took group shots to begin with.

Then I switched to photos of individual quilts, or at least only a few in the photo.


When I reached the end of the parking lot I decided to snap a photo of the whole fence -- or at least as much as I could get in the photo.

All of these were sample quilts and all were selling for 50% off.  Most were lap-size quilts or smaller.  None came home with me -- except in photographs.

Whenever I see a show of quilts I'm dazzled by the colors and patterns and I invariably forget to look at the details or how colors were put together, the borders, the actual quilting.  I can look at all of those things in photos except the quilting.

Thanks for visiting.



  1. Great pics of the fence filled with quilts! Love seeing these.:)

  2. Beautiful quilts and I like how they are lined up.

  3. What a lovely mix of styles and colours. Hanging them over the fence gives a more casual homely look than seeing them hung in rows at an exhibition. Looking at photos of quilts -especially just part of a quilt - is a good way to spot the details that make up the overall effect.


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
