Completed Gardens of India quilt

Here it is, my (Shruti's pattern) Gardens of India quilt, bound, washed, and dried:
 Photos taken at the Smith-Appleby House in Smithfield, RI, where my daughter and SIL's wedding was held back on May 31, 2008, almost three years ago!  Wow!

 Back of quilt where I deviated from Shruti's pattern because I was determined not to buy any fabric and just use from my stash.
 Waterfall way back there!  The gurgling sound was fantastic, and the birds were chirping!  It was 6 p.m. and the sun was still shining!

 Me and my shadow - yes, I look large, as my daughter so kindly pointed out, but I had on a long flowy skirt and it was quite windy - (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)  Edit:  She did say it was because of my skirt, though :-)

The tree that was - three years ago a huge gorgeous tree stood here which is where appetizers were enjoyed and a three-piece jazz band played at the wedding.  The tree, apparently, was diseased and had to go.  Oh, well.  It made for a good "table" for my quilt, even though the wind wanted to whip it up and away.
And there you have it!  Lots of pics, I know, and I see other bloggers apologize for picture-laden posts, but personally, I love lots of pics so I am choosing not to apologize.  You can skim over them, of course, your choice.  Who's to know?  But I hope you like the fabrics I chose to make up Shruti's quilt.  My darling niece loves it, and she doesn't know it yet, but it's going to live with her in NH, some day soon.
Thanks for taking the time to tarry with me!  Bless and be blessed!   ~ Jodi ~


  1. I love picture laden posts too!
    Such a beautiful quilt! Love the warm colors!

  2. Your yard and the quilt look lovely! I can't get over how green your grass is, makes the lovely colors from the quilt look even better.

  3. Your quilt is beautiful. I love the colors you used. As far as I'm concerned, you can never have to many pictures, especially when it's a beautiful setting like the one you used.

  4. I love the photo in with the quilt draped over the bridge with the creek in the background. And I can't believe you wrote that I said you look large! I clarified that it was because of your skirt!

  5. Lovely quilt and lovely background :-)

  6. Such a nice quilt in a perfect place. The colour of the grass really sets it off. I agree, can't have too many photos.

  7. Jodi your quilt looks wonderful. The photo setting is so pretty. very fitting.


I love to hear from you!
