Last year, to celebrate one of those birthdays with a zero at the end of the number, I hung all my quilts – old and new – up in the garden. It was something I had wanted to do ever since seeing a photograph of how Kaffe Fassett’s textile masterpieces were displayed in a garden. And I am glad I did it. It was a glorious day – the early summer sun was shining and friends came to look, drink tea and champagne, and celebrate with me.
As a continuation of that celebration, here are some of the photographs from that day.
