Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show 2014 - We Take You There

Heat was the order of the day at the 2014 Sisters Outdoor Quilt show this year.  Temperatures in the 90s saw the spectators visiting the show early while they could still keep cool.  It didn't stop them however, from shopping and enjoying another amazing show of quilts from around the world. 
Take a look at some of the fabulous quilts, hard-working volunteers, and beautiful flowers that make up just a piece of this wonderful day in Sisters, Oregon.

Superior Threads Blowout Sale


We took a look at the Superior Threads Newsletter and couldn't believe the sale. For the first time ever, they are putting their  'already-on-sale' Try Me Specials on a bigger FREEDOM sale.


They are already 30-50% off, but for the rest of July, they are an additional 50% off the already-sale price... Is Bob Purcell in town? Does he know about this???

We have seen two amazing quilts from the "Small Wall Quilts-Hand Quilted" category at Paducah 2014. Cindy Needham's, "The Nuns' Quilt" - 3rd Place, and Kumiko Funaki's "Rose Garden" - 1st Place, now let's see who won 2nd place...
