Airing Of The Quilts

Yesterday was much too beautiful of a day to spend cooped up in my sewing room with a stack of instruction manuals, so Anya and I got in the car and went to Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania for the annual Airing of the Quilts. After a solid week of rain and temperatures that barely got above 50 it was wonderful to walk up and down the streets enjoying the warm weather and sunshine while looking at beautiful quilts displayed on front porches and picket fences. I can't think of a better way to have spent the day!

Thanks so posting this. I had never heard of this event, and looks like a perfect way to spend an early fall day. I've put it on the calendar for next year.

I'm so jelous. They participate in the annual airing of the quilts in Marysville KS with is about a 2 hour drive from my location and we've been planning on going for MONTHS - and of course Greg got called in for orientation on his new job smack dab in the middle of the time frame so there was no way to go before or after.

Great pics Susan, what a wonderful event to be able to go to. I cold easily spend a day doing that.
Do you display your quilts from your verandahs in your area?


P.S. keep an eye on the mail.

What a great event. Wish I'd been there. I can just feel the gentle breeze, seeing the movement on those quilts.
