This year I decided that I NEEDED to stay in Oregon long enough to go to the Sisters Quilt Show, which I did on Saturday. I was fortunate enough to have my SIL, my DIL and my GD go with me! We had a wonderful time! It was a beautiful day as you can see in the picture below. This is the display of quilts on the side of The Stitchin' Post. The owner of The Stitchin' Post started the quilt show in 1975, I believe. It is a free show and anyone can send a quilt to be displayed. They can also put up quilts for sale.
Below are some of my favorite quilts from the show, but I'm not showing you all of the ones I took pictures of. I think there were over 1,300 quilts hanging around the town. We didn't see all of them.
I love this eagle quilt! I want to make an eagle quilt some day. (Add that to my list).
I didn't expect to see a Texas flag quilt there, so I had to take a picture of it. The description of it said, "You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can't take Texas out of the girl."
Another quilt on my list.....
These are some antique quilts that were for sale.
Some young entrepreneurs were selling lemonade.
I can't tell you what it meant to me to be able to go to the quilt show with family members! That is something that just doesn't happen in Texas. I do have good friends to go with and I'm not minimizing that.
This is the sum total of the sewing that I accomplished over the weekend! The current civil war block - I'm right on schedule.
In a couple days, we'll be on our way to Idaho to visit some family that I haven't seen for too many years to mention.
