Osage Bend Picnic, Quilts 2011

Sunday August 7th was St Margaret's Picnic. As usual the food was delicious, golden fried chicken, pot roast smothered in gravy, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, the best cole slaw and even fresh sliced homegrown tomatoes. I particularly liked the bowl of fried chicken livers that were placed on the table in front of me, not to mention the raisin pie I picked from the dessert table.

After stuffing myself I went outside to see the quilts. Forgive me ladies, if I got the names mixed up.

Traditional Log Cabin

If I would have bid on one, this would be it.
 I loved it.
I even found some selvages used in the blocks.
 It measured 101 by 111.
Broken Star

The heat was drippy. 
So much humidity.
We left before the auction started.
 I hear the 28 quilts bought in about $10,000 for the parish.

This grand child was more interested in the refreshments instead of looking at quilts.

About an hour after this the heavens opened up, the winds blew storm storms in with lots of rain. Thankfully the quilts were unharmed!

Another beautiful day in the country!

As usual the quilts are fabulous. I do have a soft spot for log cabins, too.

It sure does not seem like a year since you posted about the last picnic! Time is flying way too fast.

Aren't you just loving these cooler temperatures? Beautiful quilts. If I were planning on buying one, it would be very difficult to pick which one.
