|We brought home this gorgeous|
Which is why the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show has been on my must-do list for many years.
And now I've done it! Paul and I scheduled our Oregon trip around the show, and wow, was it wonderful! If you are a quilt lover, you simply MUST do this. Beautiful scenery, sweet town, amazing quilts. And it happens every year, on the 2nd Saturday in July.
I'd heard it was big, and might be overwhelming. No lie: quilts are EVERYWHERE. So we just took it slow and steady. It helped that we had local friend-librarian-awesome person Paige Bentley-Flannery to share the experience with.
Here is sampling of some of the quilts:
|Our middle son wanted us to buy this one!|
|When I saw this one, I immediately thought|
of Amy LV and EVERY DAY BIRDS!
|I wasn't the only one taking pictures. :)|
.... and since I've been home, I've been working on a quilting project of my own: a Blue Christmas quilt, made entirely of triangles. Here are some pics from from craft room:

in front of the window, of course!

|some squares I've already cut for mass producing|
the half square triangles required for this quilt!
Yes, I am having fun. :) What fun things are YOU doing this summer...that are inspiring other fun things? Please share!
