Quilt Show Week...Chapter One!

People arrived from around the world to visit the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. And it seemed that there were a whole lot more than last year! YEAH!! While shopping at the Stitchin' Post on Sunday Victoria was working and introduced me to Lorne who traveled from Scotland!  This is her 12th year seeing the show!  The first year Lorne and friends visited Victoria was their local tour guide and a friendship was born..aren't quilters just the best.


Around the Block Fiber Stroll was on Sunday July 5th.  This event starts off the Quilt Week in Sisters.  Sponsor businesses have quilts hanging inside and also there might be an artist demonstrating their artform.  Kristin Shields was outside Melvin's!  This wonderful event embraces all artists and is a great launching event for all the fun to come in the following days :)



Twigs which is the gift shop/yarn area of the Stitchin' Post also has a rotating gallery area and during show week  a combined show of collaborative work by Judy Hoiness and Jean Wells was featured.  You can click on the info sheet and read about this dynamic duo!


Enjoy the slide show of their work and a peek at the Stitchin' Post goodies! I will keep posting quilt show week as it unfolded!

  3. You need that cup for sure Anna! Really!
    The slideshow was great! The quilts in the beginning made me want to become a modern art quilter!
