Sisters Quilt Show, OR

I am on my way to the Sisters Quilt Show. My sister Wendy and my youngest daughter Aimee will be joining me as they will be taking classes all week.
This is one of my favorite places to teach. I love the area as well as the show is so well organized.
I am teaching a new children's quilt made out of all cotton fabrics, my Leaf Sampler embellishment, The Pomegranate Table Runner from my Crimson Tweed book and a creative design class from my 'Travel Journal' series.
This week Kelly and I played in the wool as we choose 100 fat quarters for an order. Wendy does amazing dyeing and her colors are so scrumptious that it is hard to part with many of them. We have an ongoing joke in the office that no one wants to pick wool for an order as it is normally one for me one for the order. That is why we all have such large stashes!
Wieke van Keulen from Holland sent me this wonderful picture of her version of my Ginger Grove Quilt. I love her colors and that she made a smaller version of my quilt.
We have a few friends who have been coming to my house for our new 'Stitch Group'. It has been fun as we have been concentrating on embroidery stitches.
They also brought a couple of completed projects to share.
It will be a busy week in Sisters. I will post my classes as soon as I get a little free time.
Happy 4th of July!


  1. ACK! I wish I were taking the classes ~ next year!

  2. Oh I so wish I was in your class...full! no room at the inn! whaaa! have a wonderful time!

  3. Your children's quilt is so cute!! I wish I lived closer, I would love to be in your stitch group. :) Hope you're having a great weekend and have fun at Sister Quilt Show.

  4. Oooooooh. I want that wool stash! There are such devine colours!

  5. Oh, spit and ruin. I went to that show three years in a row, but not for about six years hence. I WISH I WERE THERE. I want to go to the Cabin, and Huckleberries and buy flats of berries and go to the garden tour and hang out on the porch of the store. Dang, dang dang. WHY did you remind me?

  6. After I read these, I always wish I was there...whereever it it...learning cool stuff.

  7. I'm just another wishing I was going to be at one of your classes!!

  8. Oi Sue! Estou encantada com seu trabalho é lindo, adoro as cores estou te seguindo.
    Moro em Santa Maria bem no sul do Brasil. bj

  9. I'll be thinking of you as I love Sisters, the Stitchin Post and the northwest in general.
    because it is exam time in france in early July , I cannot go to the Outddor Quilt show so I will read your next post(s)about it with great pleasure.
