A day's work

I did a little sewing this weekend to get my Circa 2016 blocks done. Still up to date!!




And then I spent hours working on the Jan Patek quilt. One block took me hours!! 

Fun quilt but a lot of pieces to appliqué down. 

I always struggle between projects and I'm in that space now. Know what I mean??  I have quilts that need bindings. Ugh!  Vbg 

And tons of projects but sometimes I struggle to get my motivation going!  Any ideas??

Favorite quilt show pictures

Much to my surprise, Moda had an exhibit showing their new fabrics. Gorgeous doesn't begin to describe it!

You won't believe this is French General fabrics!  Great colors!

Love this setting!

Simple but awesome !







And look what I bought at a silent auction!!
Isn't that great?? I love it!

Here are the real mountains taken on the road from Sisters!
Breathtaking scenery!

Now to sew!!

More Sisters quilt show pictures


This was displayed by the featured machine quilter, my friend Sandy Lachowski. I loved both the pattern and the quilting!  Here is another one in the same area:
Sandy is an awesome quilter!!

So simple but striking!

I thought this was so interesting, using fabrics that had something to do with travels!

This pattern was seen in two quilts. The other one had more subtle colors but I didn't get a picture. It's a great pattern with lots of hsts!

Simple but so cute!

Hopefully you can see the adorable fabrics-- all about glamping!! 

Loved this one. 

Yet another gypsy wife!


Tomorrow I will post pictures of my favorite exhibit: the Moda exhibit.

Sisters quilt show, part I

Saturday came and went so fast. In fact, the whole last week flew by!  My cabin went from just me to two, then three, then 4 and then 6 for the past 5 days!  Lots of sewing!!

But first, let me show you a little of the show!

This is one side of the Stitchin Post which always has quilts made by employees. Sadly they are too high up to see up close. Still, so awesome!

It wasn't as crowded as usual but was so fun. The weather was perfect!  Not hot which was unusual as it has always been boiling hot. 

We did have our typical picnic lunch in the park. We were even able to meet Lori!  What a fun time. 

Then there were the quilts!  Oh my!
This is the gypsy wife pattern, which was done in many different ways in different quilts. 

That's Anne, my friend from home. 

This was our group at lunch one day down by the Old Mill district. We took some time to shop during the week. Lots of great quilt shops in Bend. 

Here are some quilts that I loved:


This was the quilt that Lori made in her class. The teachers' quilts are in one place and are so impressive!

Maybe 2"!! Adorable baskets!

Cute houses


Great log cabins!


Amazing machine quilting 


Another gypsy wife!

More to follow!

I'm going to make this. She used a bunch of Kaffe Fasset fabrics in no particular order. Love it!




Then we went out to lunch!  Love having my friends!!
