Sisters...The Quilt Capital

Well it happened again...one day, on the second Saturday in July, a small town at the base of the Cascade Mountains transforms into...a quilter's dream, quilt capital, quilt central...you name it!  We always head out early, as in 6 am...get a parking space at the park and walk to The Gallery for breakfast.  The Gallery was already packed with other early birds.  I always get a kick out of taking the early morning photo and the one later in the day.  What a difference.  ODOT (Oregon Dept. of Transportation) closes the highway and reroutes traffic around town so that quilters can rule the road!  This year was extra special because I was sharing the quilt show with my sis and her girlfriend.  Neither of them are quilters!  They were amazed!



...and starting at 7 am the quilts are hung...by 9 am the show is in full swing!  This year the weather was perfect...not too hot, not too cold.  I heard that a thunder shower moved in the later afternoon, but I was already back home.


I have sooooo many photos of all of the fun this past week that I am going to spread it out over the next few days.  Otherwise you would have to either call in sick, skip class or stay in your PJ's to get through them all! lol  Today's slide show features the teacher's quilts.  This area of the Quilt Show features the quilts that have been made by the instructors that taught at the Quilter's Affair.  Get a cuppa coffee and enjoy!
