Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show (2nd Batch)

Today I have the second round of my favorite quilts from the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. If you missed the first batch, you can see them right here.

Today's quilts start off with a few from a special exhibit to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Kona solids from Robert Kaufmann. As I said yesterday, I tried to take pictures of the labels to give every quilter his or her due. Where there is a label, I will show it before its associated quilt. Hopefully, they will be legible, and remember that you can always make an image larger by simply clicking on it. And with that said, I must apologize to this first quiltmaker for missing his or her name. I don't know if the quilter and the quiltmaker were the same person.









I love how this next quilter chose traditional blocks with names that represented the theme of the individual block. Very clever.



This next one is one of my favorite traditional quilt designs.





I like the way this next quilter fussy cut her fabric so that it overlapped her borders. A very effective technique.




I had to include this next one because it is made from a pattern by Valori Wells. It's the one and only pattern I gave up on when I couldn't get those paper-pieced suns to lie flat. I tried, and tried, and tried, and eventually gave up out of frustration. I salute this quiltmaker for getting the job done, and I'll just say..."I'm not worthy".



And this was one of my favorite quilts of the show. I saw trees burning in a forest fire, but be sure to read the quilt's story. It's not necessarily what I was supposed to see.




That's where I'll leave it for today, but there are still lots more to come, so stay tuned.

This is so fun, my favorite of the bunch is Northwest Wilderness. I'm glad you said to read the description of the willow quilt, I saw fire too and found it a little disturbing :)

The quilter is the same as the maker on the first quilt, it is for a book she wrote.
