It's an understatement that I haven't blogged in a while. I was never satisfied with my posts. I felt that if I enjoyed reading others' blogs, I should also contribute with my own blog. But...I guess self-imposed pressure was too much. So I let myself off the hook for coming up with clever posts. What I have found is that the blog is a chronicle of my projects. A timeline of conquering (or avoiding) techniques. I missed having a history of my quilting and gardening adventures. So, I've decided this is my journal and it is not intended to be clever or to be read by anyone. It's the chronicle of whatever fun is going on.





We went to the Sisters Quilt Show. We were there for 6 days. It was a little piece of heaven. The town has a little over 2,000 people. They say it grows into 15,000 the day of the show.



There were beautiful traditional quilts. Many with modern fabric. Love this feathered star.





I want this for a wall in my kitchen. Bright and cheery.




The influence of JeanWells is easy to see. There were lots of art quilts. This one is part of the Quilt for Two Rivers. I particularly like it because I walked by it and thought, " I can do that." It is beautiful.




Beautiful butterfly.











Next to a striking fish. Both these quilts are on a white background. The colors draw you in and are really stand out on the white.
All of this with the Cascade Mountains in the backdrop.

  1. Sisters is on my list of places I want to visit. Maybe next July! Beautiful pictures! Is it just a quilt show or are there classes that are offered too?

  2. Hi, Joanna. Glad to see your back. I have found the same thing. Blogging is a way to keep a journal and keep me on track at the same time. I enjoyed seeing the quilts at Sisters. I've always wanted to go, but I'm never in Oregon at the right time.
    best, nadia
