This one reminded me of one of the pharmacist I work with, Craig. He collects sock monkey stuff and even takes a Curious George stuffed animal with him on vacation to be in his vacation photos...like a traveling gnome. I thought these monkeys hanging out on the side of the liquor store was an appropriate place for them to be monkeying around and just an adorable quilt.
This year I have really given some thought to how I would ever use up my ever expanding stash and all the scraps in it also. This is such a cute idea. It reads, "Mama told me to get rid of my scraps sew I did'. I'm not sure it would make a very big dent in my scrap boxes but should be on my bucket list.
This one was cute and all the ladies seemed dressed for different seasons, some had lots of embellishments like buttons and such and was for sale for $1000.00
I hadn't realized before that some of these quilts are available to purchase and think quite a few people were actually very interested in looking for just the right quilt to take home with them.
Hexagon quilts always amaze me. It would take me 100 life times to achieve a quilt this huge out of hexies. Who am I kidding....probably more than that.
Love the blend of traditional with a playful twist of whimsy this one has.
Once again, I was drawn to the creative side of what can be achieved, these inspire me to dream of being more artful in my quilting. I only have to dare to believe I can achieve a piece such as these and set the goal to do more than to dream about creating them but actually starting with a piece and seeing what happens...seeing where the process will lead me to.
Is that a Rocking Horsefly??? LOVE it!!!
Well that's it for what I captured of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show this year. I am already thinking that next year I will need to expand the amount of time I spend in the area. Can you believe I didn't even make it to the PMGQ exhibit? shhhhh...don't tell...I don't want my membership card revoked.
Seriously, when I look at the flyer (newspaper thingy) they handed out at the event, there are things happening all weekend that are worth checking out like a $10 lunch held at Black Butte Ranch on Friday that has a quilt exhibit on their lakeside lawn that I would love to have attended. Maybe next year...
