Fun with Friends

This is the third year I was able to meet up with friends in Sisters, OR during the Quilter's Affair and Sisters Quilt Show.  This year, all my friends couldn't fit into one house, so there were two houses, but we were able to get together for dinner at each house to visit while we were there.  During the quilt show, my housemates and I posed for a few pictures together:

They close off the main street during the show, so everyone can wander around looking at all the quilts safely.  Many buildings have quilts hung on more than one side and at the end of the day, I always hear about something I missed from one of my housemates.

There were other interesting things to see like this old truck (can you tell I have boys?):

Pictures of poppies from my trip three years ago became the poppy quilt on my book cover, so I made sure I took more flower pictures:-)

And look at this old basket:

We saw lots more  beautiful quilts, spent time looking through many shops and booths, which were only there for the show and had lots of fun!  Of course, I did some shopping, even finished a couple projects, but I'll save those for another post.

A great day when you are not sewing quilts, is looking at them with friends! Excellent!
