"Let the Games Begin"

I Love the games but I love an excuse to work on  projects.

Lots of my projects are waiting to be finished.

Set this cousins challenge quilt.
"Jimmy Crack Corn"

Finish up this Red White and Blue 

Finish this 10 year old project and then figure out what to do with it.

Quilt these quilts for my girls.

Maybe start a new Project?

This is off to the quilter and maybe get it bound.

Work on more Farmers Wife Blocks

Finish this Scrappy Quilt

This is what I would like my GFG to look like.  I have about 40 so far.

Add to my Quilts with a Spin.

How long do the Olympics last?
I might need a little more time.
But I could win a Gold for starting Projects!

Sister's Outdoor Quilt Show 2012

Spent a wonderful weekend in a little town in Sister's Oregon for the Annual Outdoor Quilt Show.
It is like Disneyland for Quilters.

Driving into town

We were early and still the cars get backed up.

First quilts

The town of Sister's welcome quilters from all over the world.
I'm not kidding.

It is the biggest Outdoor Quilt Show in the world.

Love this

A little breeze and needed help to get a good picture.

"Stitching Post"
one of the big sponsors  of the show

Fire Dept helps hang quilts starting at 7:00 in the morning the day of the Quilt Show.

Behind the Stitching Post

Delightful music while you walk the streets

A little rest.

Fun Activity for the children.
 I am doing this with the Grand kids.

Block winner

Great Memory Quilt

Sister's Drug Store

Quilts all over inside.  

Steve, buying Ibuprofen for the feet.

More inside

Quilts everywhere!

Sew Cute!
Look at the scalloped  border that is not scalloped.

Lots for A frames for hanging quilts

One section of antique quilts for sale


The quilts in this section were made by Men.

I will  let my man do the  driving and I will do the quilting thanks.
Great Show

This is the traffic as we are leaving.
The advice to go early was good advice.

The beautiful Three Sister's Mountains.
