What a fun day!!!!!!!!

Last Sunday I received an e-mail from Holly over at And Sew it Is, asking me if I would like to go with her to Sisters quilt show. I said yes I would be interested. During the week we e-mailed each other many times figuring out what time to leave so we would be there before the traffic and crowd got to much. We settled on 6 a.m. at her house and we would go from there. I was up at 4:15, left my house at 5:00 and arrived at her house at 5:45. We meet for the first time. What a nice lady, of course she is a quilter, why wouldn't she be nice. Holly showed me her sewing room, beautiful and very clean. If you remember when she showed us her view a few months ago, well let me tell you she has a wonderful view. She can sew and watch the world go on around her. She is a very lucky lady. Oh yeah, what a clean sewing room, I could only wish mine was that clean. She shared with me many of her beautiful quilt tops. Maybe I can convince her to post a picture of her wonderful miniature tumblers quilt. The quilt isn't miniature but the tumblers are and it is HAND quilted. She is a wonderful hand quilter.

We say many many beautiful quilts at the show. I took 54 pictures, had to delete one as someone walked in front of while taking the picture and I had a great picture of the side of her head. I will share more pictures as the week progresses but here is my favorite.

I really liked this quilt. I might have to figure out how to make one, next in line with about 5 or 6 others I have simmering on the burner.
I am going to close now, take a shower, and sew. It was so hot. I am very glad we were there early in the morning so we did most of viewing before the weather got to hot.
I am thinking maybe I will enter a quilt or two next year. I have about 6 months to decide before entry forms are available. Hopefully Cathi O'Neil from Celtic Knots will have her Dear Jane in the show also. We can meet up for lunch and celebrate.

What a treat to go to the Sister's show. I'll be waiting anxiously to see the rest of the pictures . . . this little taste has me very excited *s*

Sounds like a wonderful day! How fun to meet another quilter that you "know" but have never met in person. Can't wait to see more quilts!

Dot! I have yet to meet you, but I was in Sisters for the Quilt Show, too! I met Cher and Nancy G....both from Portland and Doni from their Stashbusters group on Yahoo. There was so many people and with all of that shimmering heat, I'm not suprised it was hard to recognize people I might know and a true challenge to just recognize them from blog photos! Your blog is wonderful and your quilts exquisite! You should, indeed, think about entering one next year!!!
