Sisters Quilt Show

I'm going to get a little ahead of myself...

Release the Geese II by Sarah Bond
And tell you this one was at the top of the list for my favorite at the quilt show. This was included in a special exhibit of Quilt Con quilts. Every time I walked by I saw something more I liked about it.

 The speaker after dinner in the park on Friday (which was moved into the high school because of the rain) was Laura Wasilowski.  She was hilarious! Her quilts were pretty fun and spectacular as well. Here was a little series of quilts about her favorite chair. Hers are not quilts I make, but would love to take a class with her.
Funny, this ordinary quilt was at the top of my list for a favorite too. The collection of fabric made this one so unique! I loved the map too.(I have a little something for maps) Maybe it was a favorite because I can see my son liking this one after his travels.


This one of a kind quilt was made with baby clothes. So darn cute!
The Stitchin Post had an exhibit of Kona color of the year. The yellow was certainly unusual and eye catching.
This one reminded me of our Medallion challenge theme for the month- a liberated style log cabin quilt. (must get busy on my challenge!)



 Every year I see a a few of the same patterns, this year was Gypsy Wife by Jen Kingwell. Most of them were super colorful but this one was not. Very unusual quilt.

Take care and enjoy your Wednesday, my friends.

  1. I would assume that at least some of the flying geese blocks were paper pieced. Such an interesting design and though it looks simple, I think it must have been a bit of a challenge to make.

  2. That first quilt is awesome. So is the map quilt. Such unusual quilts, both of them, but fantastic. Thanks for sharing. ;^)

  3. I think the first flying geese quilt would have been my favorite also. I keep going back to look at it, love everything about it. The baby clothes quilt was a great idea, very creative.

  4. Thanks for sharing. Definitely take a class with Laura if you get a chance. Just learning her technique will be very liberating for you.

  7. That first quilt is a doozy!
    That speaker must really love her blue chair. It would never have occurred to me to make a series of quilts in honor of my favorite piece of furniture. : )
    You could make the map quilt with a little red French knot wherever you and your son have traveled.
    Oh, my goodness, the baby clothes quilt is a hoot!
    Just curious--Are there any traditional quilts at the show anymore?

  9. That first quilt was made by Sarah Bond, a member of the Philly Modern Quilt Guild. She is a very talented lady who designs all of her own paper piecing patterns. Yes, these geese are paper pieced, with the piecing templates having been designed in Microsoft Word (!). You ought to see the stuff she's working on now!

  10. Thanks so much for loving on my quilt, Release the Geese II! It was a delight to make. I love those Kokka fabrics. I didn't even know it had traveled to Sisters until folks started posting pictures of it there. I'm slbphilly on instagram if you want to see more. Working on the whole website/blog thing, but I'm kinda backed up. Thanks again, though. I really appreciate the shout out. (and, thanks Pat!)

  11. Wow, that flying geese quilt is amazing. I can't imagine that much precision! And, once again I find another thing we have in common. I love maps too, I can read them for hours. This quilt is wonderful. Thanks for sharing some of the fun!

  14. Thanks for the photos! I'll probably never be able to get to that show, so it's fun to see a bit of what it's like. I like the Gypsy Wife quilt with the light background; you can focus on the blocks, not the busy-ness.

  15. It's amazing how you can see the same quilt show and see and entirely different show.

    I know at Sisters there are many nooks and crannies that I missed but I'm always amazed at the quilts that I missed but thanks to other blogs I get to see things I missed. I did notice a lot of the Gypsy Wife quilts but missed that one you share. Thanks Lori.

  16. I took a couple classes with Laura and you are right...lots of fun! I did finish a small wall-hanging even though like you it isn't really my sort of quilting.

  17. I like the gipsy quilt in the light colors. And many of the others are impressive. Greetings
