I know – I’m a couple weeks late at this. I spent hours putting together a post the day after the show and lost it all. Hit “publish” and it was GONE! My computer and I are just now becoming friends again. I was so disgusted!
On to the show. It was GREAT! Did you go? For those who aren’t familiar with the show, It is the worlds largest outdoor quilt show. Nationally known Author, Designer, and owner of the fabulous quilt shop, “The Stitchin Post” – Jean Wells – is the founder of the show. 1401 quilts were hung outside for the one day show. It is held in Sisters, Oregon. A little town of just over 2000 located on the east side of the Cascade Mountains in Central Oregon. The main street is closed to cars and opened up to the show attendees. Traffic is routed around town. The quilts are hung down the length of the main street and down the side streets on either side for a couple blocks.
The quilts are as varied as the people who come to see them. From modern to traditional, artistic to simplistic. The quilts are often grouped by color or style. Sometimes the character of the quilts go along with the store/building they’re hung in front of.
Enough chatter ~ there’s to many pictures to show you. I’ll keep the words to a minimum and let you just enjoy the show! (photo disclaimer – with all the people and taking pictures mid day in the sun …… they are what they are).

What do you think? There were some GREAT quilts. Each one has something unique and interesting about it. Did you see one you’d like to try?
Part 2 of the show coming soon!
Thanks for visiting!
