Who's Ya Sista

Today was my class day with Ann, executive director of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. She was teaching a class called the Star of the Orient. When I received my directions with the notation that you would be making a couple of blocks...I scoffed. Only 2 blocks for the entire day? It was a precision cutting and piecing class and I have to tell you...I got 1 BLOCK completed and I am absolutely exhausted! It is the coolest block but the real treat of the day was being with other quilters.

This was my first class of the year, sharing it with friends, laughing and sewing...well it doesn't get any better than that! It was a gorgeous day in Sisters and at lunch we walked down to Season's for the best sandwich in town! On the way back we did a little shoe shopping at Sundance Shoes! I have never gone in there without finding the prefect pair of shoes!

So, enjoy the slide show and be sure to put a trip to Sisters on your bucket list!
