These gardens are at The House of the Seven Gables in Salem, MA.

I attended a lecture about a new line of quilting fabrics from Blue Hill Fabrics that celebrates 100 years of preservation at the House of the Seven Gables. The fabrics were inspired by wall-coverings and other textiles in the house's collection.

The fabrics will available worldwide later this year, including at Marketplace Quilts in Salem, MA. They had the first test pieces of fabric at the lecture, and they were beautiful. The photos on their website don't do them justice!

Time to start taking photos for the colors of July!!

How very beautiful! Your colors are gorgeous and so are those of your entrants. I blew it! I missed submitting my entry. I will try to be much better in July.

Oh, how spooky! I was just in Salem today and was in that quilt store. (A few too many crying babies, so I didn't last long.) It amazing how we all cross paths. Your photos are fantastic!

What a beautiful garden and building. I have a batch of ginger scones in the oven and fresh strawberries from my garden - looking forward to desert tonight!

It's such a neat place. I think we went there every year in grade school and I have gone a few times as an adult. The gardens have really evolved.
I have to check those fabrics out!
