Sunriver Sisters

 Last summer a bunch of who got together to sew and have fun the week before the Sisters Outdoor Show swapped friendship star blocks. I thought I better get mine completed before this year!
 I took photos in different lighting as a test. I thought I'd just post them all here.

 I won! I won! Janet from Rogue Quilter was celebrating her 3 years of blogging and here's the wonderful loot! Look at that tiny quilt! It's all so fabulous! Thank you again Janet!
Life is throwing us curve balls again. My FIL ended up in the hospital and should be discharged tomorrow but they will not let him go home alone. So, we will be re-arranging our downstairs to accommodate him until an apartment opens up at the assisted living unit my mom is in. I put him on the list last week. It should keep things interesting around here that's for sure!

Make it a great Monday!

  2. Maybe you can show your FIL how to make some nine patch quilt blocks while he is there.

    Friendship Stars are a good block to trade among friends. I like the setting you chose with the house in the middle. Are you doing another block trade at the show this year?

  4. Congratulations on your wins, I need to start working on the ones I got;)
    I hope that things work out for your FIL, it is hard when they can't stay home and wonderful that you are there for him.

  5. Lucky you to get all that Loot from Janet. Your Friendship stars with the house are a great memory of your Sunriver Sisters. Hopefully Bonnie will be joining you this year.

  6. Love your stars/house quilt. You are so good at recreating the vintage look.
    One of my early blogging memories was reading about one of your Sunriver getaways. I love seeing what you ladies come up with.
    You will have your hands full for a while, won't you? Aging parents are a reality in our lives, too (like the call at 3:30 this morning from my MIL, who lives across the pasture from us. She had fallen two hours earlier and didn't want to bother anyone, but still couldn't get up, so she finally called. Luckily, unhurt)!
    I'm glad you like your winnings. They went to a good home. : )

  7. Your friendship star quilt is lovely. Wish I was going to Sisters this year, but it will have to wait until next year. Congrats on your win. What a cute little mini quilt and pincushion. I'm sure you will be able to put those charm packs to work quite soon. It will be fun playing with them.

  9. That little quilt is really tiny! I have been thinking about doing some nine patch blocks to use up scraps of Liberty prints. Well done on your win! - do I see some Jo Morton fabrics in your quilt! :)

  11. Gotta love a quilt with a house block and stars! So heart warming! Very nice win on the fabric. Lovely to have something new to check out. And so sorry about your FIL, but I bet you'll have some good times before he's settled.:)

  12. Such a cute way to use the friendship stars! And yes, life has a way of throwing the curve - when least expected, but I'm sure you are handling it very well. Thank God for daughters and sons who care.

  13. What a great little quilt with some good memories attached to it! Love the house and stars! Congratulations on your win, those are pretty fabrics, cute goodies and an adorable tiny quilt. Your little blocks for the sew along are so cute. I have been saving the patterns but haven't had time to start them yet. You are keeping up very well. Sorry to hear your FIL is having some health issues. It is hard watching parents age and have difficulties. At least your Mom and FIL can be at the same location, that will help a little bit.

  17. Lori, I'm so glad you got the friendship star quilt done. I think Claire and I may be the only ones who haven't put them together... Okay, I'll get on it before we are together for the show this year. Hope George gets into the assisted living soon...

  18. Looking forward to seeing all those friendship star quilts later on next month.

    Assisted living sounds like the right route for your FIL. Hope you all hold up while he waits for his place.

  22. Lori - I just sent "mine" (with the friendship stars) off to be quilted. I ended up adding the s'more blocks (that Pat gave us instructions for) around it. Yours looks terrific. I will send you a photo of mine when its done. I have to say when I saw your picture the first time I thought "where have I seen that before". It looks a bit like mine!
