Quilts In The Barn and Having Fun In The Sun!

This morning Melody and I headed off to Linda's place for the annual Quilts In The Barn. This year's theme was Infinite Variety Revisited - An Exhibition of Red and White Quilts. Featured were antique red and white quilts from the Mary Koval collection. They were amazing.
Here are just some of the beautiful quilts.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
All the quilts look so much better in person.

 Melody, Linda and me!
 Of course, what better way to finish off our outing with a cuppa and scones, jam and cream! If you get the chance to go, it's a lovely way to spend a couple of hours.

 With the temperature hitting 31 degrees yesterday, the boys and some friends made a water slide down the front of the house.
 
 They had a great time going up and down.
