A Totally Modern Weekend
Trying to play catch up on the activities of July before August comes rolling around! HH and I spent the weekend in Portland...it was absolutely beautiful! As we were coming home it looked like all of Portland spent the weekend in Central Oregon, lol. Here is a peek of Mt. Washington...the snow is almost gone, which means summer is flying by!
A week ago yesterday I had lunch with Alissa Haight Carlton and Elizabeth Hartman who are the movers and shakers of the Modern Quilt Movement. I learned so much from them and there is definitely an explosion of the Modern Quilt Guilds. QuiltCon, the first ever Modern Quilt Convention in Austin Texas was so successful that it will be back in 2015! I was able to take the walking tour on Modern Quilting at the Five Pines Resort with Alissa and Elizabeth. Seeing the quilts hung among the trees was breath taking and next year I am going to seriously take a look at what is offered on Save It For Sunday!

Enjoy the slide show...it is refreshing!
