Sunny Saturday, Dreary Sunday...

Yesterday was a beautiful day in South Jersey. The sun was shining, it was warm and there was a slight breeze...a perfect day for an outdoor quilt show and fair. Historic Burlington City played host to over 100 quilts, which were hung from clotheslines in the streets and displayed in store fronts along High Street.


Even Ben Franklin came to visit!

The Delaware River looked beautiful...and the boss looked pretty good himself. :o)
New to the Burlington Waterfront is the Liberty Belle, a paddleboat which can be rented for parties, meetings and other events. It's a beautiful boat and was being prepared for a wedding while we were there.
The sunshine didn't carry into today unfortunately. It's been damp and dreary here, which made me want to spend the day in the kitchen. I made a pot of beef stew, cinnamon streusel muffins and even tried my hand at bagels. The bagels taste much better than they look, considering they are just a little flat. I did find out what I did wrong and will be trying again next week!

wish I would have known I would have come down to see these quilts.
Sorry I missed it.
Who hosted this? Is it an annual event?

thanks
Kathie

Drats! You lucky dog! I missed it because I was too wrapped up in yard work. Olde City Quilts did a great job! Glad you got to enjoy the day! Wish I had taken the time out to go, but at least I get to enjoy your pictures. Huggles. :o)

There's something beautiful about quilts hanging in the breeze. Looks like a fun event. I've tried bagels and found the same thing, they taste better than they look.
