Outside Quilt Show

Saturday was quite delightful as Elinor & I took a trip to near Oregon, Illinois. We attended “Not Your Sister’s (Oregon) Quilt Show”.

For those of you that are not quilters, there is a famous outdoor show held in the town of Sisters, Oregon. We didn’t travel that far yesterday.

Main gate to home area

Several friends of mine from quilt guild put this together.

The weather was perfect.
The setting was just stunning.
The friends were fun!

Just going over the pictures makes me happy! It was exceptional!!

We liked the simple style of this quilt and found it in another colorway later.

Lining the driveway were vintage metal chairs draped with old & new quilts and a variety of decorations.

Down the hill to the main viewing area… this is what awaited us. Isn’t this setting darling!!

A beautiful pastel quilt with circular hand quilting we admired.

Quilts on clotheslines, quilts in wheelbarrows…

Elinor liked the layout of this red, white, & blue one. She has hand embroidered blocks she & her youngest did years ago that could be the on-point centers.

This could be an option for a friend who wants a Northwoods themed quilt.

I have this wildflower pattern and would LOVE to make this!!

Love this simple strip set!
Another peak before we head back up the hill.

The hill back to the house from the wooded area.

Love this quilt layout of the 2 blocks. I have some scrappy squares that would work here.

We listened to the soapmaker’s SO/DH tells us it was “the best soap around”… and quietly sauntered off. https://i0.wp.com/img93.exs.cx/img93/2706/lengua9ep.gif Ha!! Little did he know…

Before we left, we found out Elinor had won a door prize!!

The walk back to our car… down the basket-lined lane.

We finished our outing with lunch at Rachel’s in Oregon. Yummy!! Great fun was had by all!!!
