Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show

Sisters, Or was alive in color today.  It definitely was worth the drive and I hope to be able to do it again next year!  I read last night that there was 1401 quilts being displayed this year and I am sure we never saw a fracture of them but what we saw was outstanding.  To tell you the truth, our local quilt shows in March and April were kind of a let down from last year, but the Sisters' Quilts were simply spectacular.  Maybe it was the drop dead gorgeous day they had.  When we left at 2 pm today it was already 98 degrees.

I wanted to get back to Salem in time to get my Row by Row Experience quilt pattern from Greenbaum's in Salem so we left early, but both my daughter and I, were ready to get out of the heat of the day.  While it meant we didn't see over half the quilts we were tickled pink by the wonderful day we had.

I will try to post a few pictures over the next few days of  a few of the beauties we saw.  Just seeing the town decked out in quilts made our day.

There were a large number of quilts that caught my eye but especially the ones with their beautiful Kaffe Fassett fabrics shouting loud and proud...check me out. Love, love this one.

Kaffee Fassett fabrics were everywhere.

I quickly needed a pit stop at the Stitchin' Post to stock up on some Kafee Fassett fabrics of my own.

It was a beautiful store and we spent quite a while shopping in there.  I had to buy a keepsake Sister's 2014 bag to stow all my treasures :) Bag did double duty...carried my finds around town and hid them from the DH's prying eyes when I got home. Guess, my shopping spree was just one of the benefits of working all that overtime.

By this time I think my hair was already melting from the heat, but that didn't stop me from smiling with all my shopping satisfaction achieved.

My daughter loved the large number of pictorial quilts

I was still drawn time and again to anything with outstanding colors
The crowd was huge but what a well behaved group of people...everyone we encountered was just so
friendly...Quilter's Rule


We saw a couple of the New York Beauties.  Both were calling for me to make one of these someday.

The second one added a great row of jumping fish to the bottom.  Love it!
I will try to share more of my adventure in Sisters in the next couple days.
Keep Stitchin'
