Aurora Quilt Show 2021

Here are a few of my favorite quilts from the quilt show in Aurora, Oregon at the Old Aurora Colony Museum. 

Love the story on this one. The owner's brother decided to start making quilts about the age of 60. 

I love this setting!

You should be able to click to enlarge. 

This wasn't my favorite quilt but I loved the story! 
The maker was using her grandmothers stash. 

Tiny Lemoyne stars. Gorgeous!

Not sure what book or nursery rhyme this is from. 

I loved it for its quirkiness!

Someone donated this to sell with proceeds going to the museum. It was lovely. 

Below is the lovely setting this quilt show takes place. 

This was a new-to-me display of musical instruments from the Aurora Colony band. 

Let's make it a great week!



  1. Ohhhh ... these quilts are beautiful, especially the basket quilt ! I love its colors !
    Thank you for sharing Lori !

  2. Lori maravilloso espectáculo, Gracias por compartir.

  3. Thank you for sharing these beautiful quilts!! And their stories!! I think the nursery rhyme is "Jack Spratt could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean. And so between the 2 of them, they licked the platter clean."

    1. I agree. Jack Sprat came to mind immediately!

    2. So here's me thinking "I got it! I got it!" And you two already did. LOL!

  4. The redwork quilt was a Ruby McKim design.

  5. This is about my favorite post every fall, loved when I was able to get to the Aurora quilt show. I had a set of Thornton Burgess books when I was young, and those unidentified blocks in the red and white quilt are probably likenesses of some of his animal characters. So sweet.

  6. Looks like a really interesting show in a historic setting. The little LeMoyne stars!!

  7. Thanks for sharing the Aurora Colony quilts. Love them!

  8. What a lovely bunch of quilts and antiques

  9. thank you for sharing. Have a great week.

  10. That Lone Star quilt is the prettiest Lone Star I have ever seen.
    Thanks for sharing the pictures.

  11. The mini Lemoyne quilt is truly beautiful and answered a question I had. And I love that cobbler's bench too. I recently reworked a star design a pattern creator made using half square triangles. This was supposed to make it easier and avoid the half seams of the original design. To my mind it wasn't a star pattern (all the points took a jag to the left). My revert of the half square pattern to a more original looking design using diamond shapes was a fun challenge. I had no idea that it was called a Lemoyne star! Thank you for this lovely post.

  12. great quilts and wonderful museum~
    Thanks for sharing
