I had such and amazing time at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show last weekend...  It was super cool to finally be there and to see my quilts on display all over town.

Travel Quilts #2 and #3 were hanging and they looked so... intricate from across the street or down the block.  I guess I forget that I stitched them from 1.5" diamonds?  

I had 3 other quilts in the show too, maybe I'll post about them later, I want to keep the focus on EPP today.  Of course I found some time to work on Travel Quilt #6 that weekend:

and got in a bit of stitching on TQ#5 during the car ride too:

I'm back home in NY now, but omg, I am SO in love with Oregon.  The quilt shops, people!  The quilt shops alone are reason enough to buy plane tix and rearrange your schedules to get out there.  And I didn't even make it to that many (4 maybe?).  It was enough, though.  I came home with an extra suitcase (I had to carry the 5 quilts...) and probably around 20 yards of fabric.  Quilting heaven, I'm telling ya...

I have cut up a bunch of new fabric for hex-diamonds and I hope to get some stitching done throughout the rest of the summer.  I'm also working on some big machine pieced projects though, so I've got to balance my time.  Yesterday it was just plain too hot to quilt.. maybe this week I can convince the kids to hang out at the public library for a while (or anywhere else with free air conditioning?).

Now it's your turn.  Who has been making progress on their EPP this week?


  1. It must be very exciting to see your quilts hanging all over town. Summer quilting in Hokkaido is so nice - low 70's and very low humidity, as you probably remember!

  2. Ooh-er I did a double take there- as you know, in England, our steering wheel is on the right LOL
    I would love to attend an open air quilt show. It rains too often and too unexpectedly here. No-one would chance their quilts outside :-)
    I enjoyed seeing your quilts in this way, you don't really get the full effect until you step back and get some perspective, especially about size.

  3. I will be adding this to my list of places to go. Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures of your quilts.

  4. Oh my gosh! You were on my coast! Still, about six hours drive from Seattle. You and your quilts look SO great. Let me know next time you come this way. It'd be fun to meet up! I agree about Northwest quilt shops.

  5. It's wonderful to see your quilts hanging on the line. Especially as I am slowly working on a star quilt. Nice to see what it's potential could be. I'll link up my very slow progress next week.

  6. Wow that's great to have your quilts displayed at the Sisters show. They look great!

  7. My hubby wants to go to Oregon, and while I'm not as excited about it as he is, the prospect of all those quilt shops you mention are making it much more appealing! ;-) I hope to be able to link up next week (I just discovered your blog) as I hope to make some progress on my EPP bow tie quilt this weekend on our road trip.
