Sisters Part 2

Hi Everyone,

     I hope you enjoyed part one of our Sisters Oregon trip here are some more pictures to tease you with. This group of quilts were all made by a book club. This past year they read the original Peter Pan and Wendy by J.M. Barrie. They then decided to make stunning quilts inspired by scenes from the book. I can't even begin to tell you how totally incredible these quilts were. The quilt below had to be at least 50" x 60" all machine appliqued, thread painted and quilted. You could have stood there all day and not scene all the details.

Don't you love when Peter gives Wendy a "kiss" aka thimble. Look at the quilting in the background....incredible!

This is the Mermaid scene from the book, again absolutely stunning. The hours of work that went into these projects, I can't even begin to imagine.

Do you feel like you have been to Neverland..."second star to the right and straight on till morning."

Looks like we need a part 3 to our Sisters Show and Tell.

Sister's Oregon ...The Worlds Largest Outdoor Quilt Show

Hi Everyone,

    We had such a great trip to Sister's Oregon. If you have never been you really need to add it to your bucket list. It is always so incredible. Each year there are so many quilts to be inspired by. I won't go on to much about it, I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!
