 Here's my Stars in A Time Warp star for this week- Fancy Machine Grounds. I was hoping to make it subtle and not easy to see and I think I accomplished that. I'm trying to mix it up a bit.

This week kicks off the festivities of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.


 Friday morning volunteers met up to deliver Sponsor quilts to businesses in Sisters. This is the 3rd year I've done this and it is fun to see the businesses get excited about the quilt show. Here is Jeanette giving us our directions before sending us out.
 Intake of quilts has started too. Here are volunteers labeling folding and getting them organized.
 The quilts are organized by theme. This large room is really wonderful for it.
Here I am at Sisters Art Works getting ready to hang this quilt by Kristin Sheilds. It will hang for the whole month of July.

On another note, I loved this book! You may want to put it on your reading list.

  2. The quilt you are holding goes so well with the business where it will be displayed. Very nice! I'm curious about the book - I bought it about a month ago and have started it but haven't been drawn in yet. Did you find it started slow and then got better? I am really not far into it.

  6. I've only been to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show once, and it was fabulous. I'm always amazed that the quilts go up in the morning and then come down that same night. Hoping I'll be able to get there again soon. Loved the book, best read in a long time. Although The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, and A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler were a close second.

  14. I love the fabrics in your block! I haven't decided if I will go to the quilt show this year. If my SIL wants to go, I might. That camp ground looks awesome! We might have to check it out if we ever get our camper fixed up. Does it have sites for 5th wheels?

  15. I thought you might be doing the volunteer quilt thing again. Won't be long until show time. Some of my quilting friends are supposed to attend the show. Lucky them!

  16. I'm working on my stars today too. Doing some blocks with that fade-away look is a good idea. Love that novel - one of the best I've read in recent years!

  17. I have done that and I agree it is fun to hang the donor quilts. I worked in the office yesterday, so many wonderful quilts to see and seeing them up close is a treat! It amazes me that I can not always find them in the show!!! I like your star block, nice fabrics!!
