Seen At The Quilt Show (Part 1)

It's been a busy week plus around here. We are blessed to get lots of visitors to our shop as quilters stop in on their way to and from the annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show and A Quilter's Affair classes. We're always looking for trends and listening to our customers to find out what's hot. Like last year, our Pinecone Kristin went to the show and brought back lots of ideas and inspiration to share.

Overall, the quilts were wonderfully varied, possibly leaning more towards the Modern and the innovative as opposed to strictly traditional designs. There was definitely something for everyone though.

Maybe it's just Kristin, but house themed quilts kept popping up, and what's not to like about that! Some favorites were this large version of Fierce Ladies by one of The Stitchin' Post's employees (that's a part of the iconic collection of employee quilts always displayed on the side of the store's building):

Another quilt on the side of the building was this one by Laura Simmons:

Kristin loved the whimsy of House Party Revival by Tonye B Phillips in the Teacher's Tent:

Also in the Teacher's Tent, and equally charming was Hunderwasser Takes a Walk by June Jaeger.

More bright houses on view in El Vecindario (The Neighborhood) by Hilde Morin:
