Quilt Show

Quilt Show L:ogo
September 23 & 24 – 2017
Presented by Alden Lane NurseryIn Between Stitches – September 23 and 24, 2017

Each year Quilting in the Garden at Alden Lane Nursery is special, unique and amazing. Hundreds of quilts from celebrated artists and the quilting community are hung for display throughout the nursery.  Our enormous and beautiful heritage oaks serve as both support structure and background for this wonderful 2-day display of color.  The quilts go up by 9:00 each morning supported by dozens of quilt lines. Quilts come down each night.  Every year the show features a well-known quilter and a guest artist as well as quilts submitted from the quilting public.

Featured Artist

Alden Lane is proud to feature Edyta Sitar, founder and owner of Laundry Basket Quilts (www.laundrybasketquilts.com) as our featured artist at our 2017 Quilting in the Garden.

Edyta combines her life-long passion for fabric with a family legacy of quilting to create extraordinary results. Not only does she generate beautiful quilts, but Edyta also produces exceptional patterns and gorgeous fabrics. Her designs showcase many beautiful quilting traditions infused with glorious color to create her unique style.

Edyta gathers inspiration from her surroundings and travels the world sharing her experiences and connecting with quilters near and far. We look forward to offering a glimpse of Edyta’s colorful world to our visitors at Quilting in the Garden, Sept. 23 & 24th,  2017.

Guest Artist

This year, Alden Lane is happy to welcome Debby Schnabel as our guest artist.  She will display her work in our greenhouse.

Debby has worked in various types of fiber arts her whole life–from spinning and knitting, through cross stitch and needlepoint, and now quilting and occasionally rug hooking. Beautiful colors are her biggest influence, and she loves the different textures that handwork can create. Embroidered quilting has become an important part of her work.

After a successful and fulfilling career as a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse, she retired to work full-time as a studio quilt artist in her cabin in the Sierra Foothills.

Her faith in God is an integral part of her life, and she loves to incorporate the beautiful words of scripture into her artwork…
