Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show (Sixth [and Last] Batch)

Before I show you the quilts today, I want to show you the fun map that one of the Sisters realtors had on display. You could grab a hot fix crystal and put yourself on the map, which was totally fun!


Forty-eight of fifty states were represented. The only ones missing were Maine and Louisiana. Lenelda put herself on the map from Texas.


There were a surprising number of international visitors.


And, of course, lots of Oregon. I put myself on the map from Newberg.


Okay...on with the quilts. A few of these were hanging above my head, and so my apologies to the quilters whose labels I missed. It's the end of the day...your feet are probably hurting by now.




This next one was all about the quilting, which I would classify as free motion machine embroidery. I'd like to give this a try.










Cute details in this quilt.




This next one was surprisingly appealing with its plaid fabrics and its muted colors.











I wanted to show you the detail in this quilt. Each one of those little "bricks" was cut out and appliqued on.


Not technically a part of the show, this was hanging in a shoe store.



Be sure to notice the quilting on this one. Do you see the heavy rope coming from the anchor?




For you, Padsworth.





Last, but not least...beautiful and unique.





I hope you enjoyed the show!!!

I did enjoy the show, thank you. I'm a little sad that it's over though. I liked the shattered heart or whatever it's called, LOL. You can do that free motion quilting, I've seen much harder things that you've done.

Always great seeing the work of fellow quilters. I particularly liked the giraffe quilt...a very clever use of trim. If I were one of them, I think I would like to be the yellow pom pom giraffe :-) The anchor was also a favourite and that lacework, whilst not to my taste, was amazing. Thank you for sharing.
