Sisters

as most of you know i go to Sisters, OR each year for their Outdoor Quilt Show. its about a 6 hour drive for us but we make an adventure out of & have lots of fun getting there. this year will be (i think) my 6th year of attending the show. after the 1st couple of years i wanted to do something more then just go to the show. so 1st i did their quilt block challenge which i did again this year. then i decided to put a couple quilts in the show. last year i only did the block challenge but this year is different.

this year i not only did the block challenge but i have put 3 quilts in the show this year.



this in my Hope Valley Sampler quilt that i did from Amy's QA over at Amy's Creative Side.
i love the back of it just about as much as i love the front of it.
i call this quilt Cotton Candy because of all the soft color in it. the pattern is Strip Search. it was a fun one to make and it went together very quickly.
this quilt i call Red Box. i made it from KarrieLyne's QA over at Freckled Whimsy. KarrieLyne taught us the basic block & then showed us several ways we could lay them out to get different looks.



as most of you know i am also taking a class at Sisters this year. i have talked & talked about it each year i have gone but never have done anything about it. until i was on Twitter and learned that Tula Pink is going to be there teaching a class. the little girl inside of me was screaming with joy & jumping up & down. Shelly & i are taking her class on Thursday which will be a blast.


i hope to do a couple blog posts from the Sisters trip this year. so check back to see what kind of trouble we found along the way.
