The first ones you see were displayed in the Teachers Tent and were made by quilters from near and far (i.e. local, national, international) who taught classes in Sisters the week before the show:

One of my favorites in this year’s group was this one:

Painted Ladies by Edie Hines

 

Speaking of the Stitchin’ Post, Helen Robinson of Sew Kind of Wonderful was invited by the shop to demonstrate the Quick Curve Ruler and the QCR Mini on the day of the quilt show. When I heard she would be in town, I just had to meet her!

    I am always amazed by photos from the SOQS, I go to the show each year, and I see a LOT of the quilts, and take pictures myself, but then when I see the photos someone else took, it is as if we were at different shows ! I think it is a function of there being SO MANY quilts, don’t you agree, Dawn? Loved your photos, just looked at them all, again! Thanks, Suzette in Bend
