Heart Song

As July winds down and I reflect back to all the adventure and quilts that have touched my heart...I am especially humbled by the generosity of those around me...to share their time...their wine, chocolate and fabric! lol...my heart sings with all the blessings in my life.  The #1 reason for being a quilter...is the community...the connection.  Quilting is more than fabric.  It is more than patterns.  It is about the people.  There is a connectivity that occurs which I have never found in any other group...and sometimes we don't even realize it!

I was humbled to get a call from Marilyn at QuiltWorks that someone had left something for me.  When I arrived I was blown away...all the way from New Zealand Nienke had left me a little piece of New Zealand.  Thank you so much!  If you read this...I am in awe and am humbled that my blog ramblings are read on the other side of the globe.  I only wish I had known you were here...for sure I would have run right over!!!  Next time let me know...thank you, thank you, thank you!  The Seashell will have a special place in my sewing room to remind of the connections we all have and how small the world really is...

The Fiber Stroll is at the very beginning of the Quilting Adventure in Sisters.  Quilts are hung inside of local businesses and different artisans are showcasing their creations and their creative process.  You are able to leisurely shop, observe and converse with the artists.  Such a wonderfully relaxing way to start the quilting adventure in Sisters.  I encourage you...if you are coming to Quilters Affair and the Quilt Show...make it a week and enjoy the entire experience, starting with the Fiber Stroll!
