Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, Post 1

Hi everyone,

I had an amazing time last Saturday looking at all the wonderful quilts displayed in the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. I took plenty of quilt show photos and will post them over the next few days.

I’ll start by posting this great view of the Three Sisters:

I love living here in Oregon, amongst these beautiful Cascade mountains and tall evergreens!

In this post, I’ll show you the three quilts that I displayed this year. The Hummer Storm quilt we found right away, but the other two quilts were a bit more difficult to find. We finally did find them at opposite ends of town.

I love this picture that my hubby took of my Hummer Storm quilt because you can see our son also taking a picture of me and the quilt with our little point-and-shoot camera:

We started the day bright and early during the quilt hanging process. We finished touring the quilt show around 11:30 when our little guy decided he’d had enough of the quilts and wanted to go for a hike.

I hope you enjoyed this first post on the quilt show. Stay tuned for more quilt photos in my next post!

Enjoy!

Hummer Storm at Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show!

In an earlier post, I showed you the BOM quilt that I’m entering into the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. I’m also entering this Happy Halloween applique quilt.

I finished my third and final quilt to display at the show called Hummer Storm! This quilt is entirely paper pieced using just 3 fabrics. The design is by Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio.

I just love how this quilt turned out! The movement of the Storm at Sea blocks combined with Snail Trail blocks showcases well and the turquoise zinger really adds that extra pop.

Here’s a look at the quilt front:

For the quilt back, I used leftover pieces of fabric to add some interest to the label area:

The finished quilt is about 66 inches by 66 inches.

I can’t wait to see it displayed at the quilt show in just a few weekends!
Enjoy,
