A peek at the back revealed that these kaleidoscope blocks were made from a focus print of . . . mushrooms!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little presentation of the quilts that caught my eye this year. The quilts you see here and in my last post represent fewer than 4% of the quilts that were displayed. Simply astounding when you stop to think about it.

Is it any wonder that I have already marked my calendar for July 12, 2014 — the second Saturday in July — for the 39th Annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show?
