Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show

I wasn't planning to make the trip to Sisters this year, but at the last minute Dad offered to take the boys to the fish hatchery. I wasn't going to turn down an opportunity to drool over quilts without any kids in tow, so we were in the car and pulling out of the driveway at 6am. I know I'm lucky to be within such easy driving distance of something so wonderful...but it's awful hard to remember that when it's so early in the morning!

By far, my favorite quilts were the ones the Cover to Cover Book Club Quilters did based on Peter Pan.

Can you make out the quilting on Wendy's skirt? That texture was absolutely amazing.



And I just love this room with the open window.



And what would Neverland be without a pirate galleon? The boat was so wonderful I didn't even notice Captain Hook and the crocodile until I got home and cropped the picture!



There were amazing appliqued skeletons....



And Dia de Los Muertes skulls...



I want to dig through my scraps and find the perfect ones to make a bunch of dresses -- and I've got a similar pattern somewhere in my stash. These were pieced! As much as I like pieced blocks, I'm leaning towards applique for this project.



I've had this pattern on my wish list for a long time, but I've never seen it done in such cheerful colors.



Lori's Dear Jane quilt was amazing. I dragged Mom over to look at it and was then so busy drooling I forgot to take a picture.

And there was an Orca Bay! I still can't get over all of those itty-bitty pieces.

Great photos, I haven't been to Sisters for a few years now, maybe next year. Sounds like Lori's Dear Jane was quite the hit, it's been posted on several blogs! Thanks for sharing

Thanks for posting some pics from the show. It's so far from me that I will probably never get there in person, but love seeing it through others eyes.
