Sister’s Quilt Show

Hi there!  I had a fantastic weekend with family in Oregon, and we had the pleasure of taking in the sights in Sister’s.  With all the pictures I want to share, I decided to put them all in a slide show, click to start!

The show was spread out all over the storefronts, in the stores, and on the exterior of buildings.  Wherever space could be found!  Everywhere we looked there were more quilts!  I hope you enjoyed the show from your chair!

If you would like to view each picture independently, I have a set on flickr as well.  Go poke around, let me know which ones you love too!


PS – I will have a iPad/Laptop case tutorial available shortly – I have some math to do, and I need to make another one too.  Thanks for your response!

    There were so many beautiful and inspiring quilts. If I had to pic a favorite – maybe the boat scene, but there were a lot of awesome quilts.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I have gone to Sisters the last three years but I didn’t make it this year and I really missed it! Thank you for sharing all your favorites. There were too many to pick one favorite but I love the quilts on the side of the Stitchin’ Post. That is one of my favorite spots every year. It is such an inspirational show!

    Thanks for the eye candy! Looking forward to the tutorial on the ipad…I’m hunkering for a new case made out of some yummy fabric too!

    The quilt that you gave the close-up of the band quilting was my favourite. Some of the hand-quilting had been done in white regular cotton and then I think the red was done in Perle.
    Very, very inspiring quilt slide show and thank you very much for taking the time to put it up for the rest of us to watch.

    I love Sisters, though I’ve never had the opportunity to go during the quilt show. It’s a great little town, and I appreciate the photos of the show. Thanks!

    Lovely quilts……but there is no documentation of who made the quilts.

    Stunning! The slide show must have taken forever to prepare, thank you!

    Ditto to all the thanks above. What an interesting collection of traditional with a twist and anything goes. Some day I wish to see this in person.

    It was so fun meeting you at the show! You have a few photos of quilts I didn’t even see there were so many. Thanks for the slideshow.

    I was there. I didn’t elbow you out of my way or knock you aside with my quilted bag trying to beat you to any photos, did I ;) I’m an Alaskan who married an Oregonian and has lived here ever since and just about the only thing (besides the weather) that makes that a plus is..the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show! Whee Haw!!!!
