If you arrive in town early, early, early in the morning, the weather is cool and it's not too crowded. The main street looks like this.
However, as the day goes on, it starts to look like this…
We went home at 11:30, so I have no idea how much more crowded it got. But…for some reason, it doesn’t feel crowded. In past years, the attendance figure has been estimated at upwards of 20,000 people. You have to keep in mind that the whole town of Sisters has a population of just over 1,000. LOL. This year there were 1300 quilts on display.
I’ll show you my favorite quilt first! I’m sure it won’t surprise anyone.
All WOOL! It was made by a quilter from Canada. I thought it should have come home with me, but I am too short and couldn't get it down. Darn!
I also loved this one. The pattern is by Miss Rosie’s. I think I have it in my "collection", so I might just have to pull it out and get working on one for me! (and it doesn’t even have any applique…whoa, that’s a shockeroo for me).
Here are more for your viewing pleasure.
I just love the way the quilts are hanging from the trees and buildings.
This quilter became my new best friend…unfortunately, I don’t know her name. LOL (she kept getting in my pictures and we had a good laugh about it)
Don’t want to over stimulate you with too many pics at once, so…more tomorrow. Hasta la vista, baby!
