Too much fun in Sisters!

It was such a beautiful week in Sisters, OR! Cooler than normal, the weather was very comfortable. This year I was lucky to share a condo for the week before the show, so I was able to take some classes. Of course we kept busy, either in class, learning or teaching our roommates new skills, shopping, or just relaxing - although I don't think I took time for that - I was having too much fun!

This is the view we passed on our way to classes at the high school - isn't it beautiful!

It's so nice they close the roads so that you can wander back and forth across the road as the quilts catch your eye. I thought I would just post a couple pictures showing the buildings hung with quilts (if you know the maker of any, please let me know and I'll add the information to my post).

This is the side of the Stitchin Post, and as I understand it, the quilts have all been made by shop employees. It's great to see what they like to make, and it is quite different from year to year.

And here is our little group of roommates: Ellen, Cathy, Becky, Susan, and I'm on the right.

This is Tonye Belinda Phillips, author of Hand Appliqued Quilts, and teacher of the Jammin' with Scarlet class, which is a project from her book. The two day class was a lot of fun!
Projects later...

Sounds like a fun time, Lynn. I loved Sisters the one time we were there; it just didn't work out to get to the show. Glad you did!
