Here I am catching up on events of the past week. It was a whirlwind and I didn't even take classes this year! On Tuesday night there was the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show's 35th Anniversary Party. There was a wonderful display of memorabilia from the past 35 years.
I love this photo of Gwen Marston and the lemonade kids. "Lemonade for sale, come on over, 25cents for quilters, 26 cents for everyone else".
An early photo of the crowd. More were coming in.
There were some wonderful, huge raffle baskets. Above, a basket of thread from A Common Thread in Portland. Didn't win, but I did pull the numbers for these!
Gorgeous works of art were sold in live auction by the fantastic auctioneer. Above is Jean Well's fish art quilt, a smaller version of the one in the gallery show.
Some of Jean's work was decorating the dinner tent.
The quilt show's fearless leader, Ann Richardson read aloud some words of congratulations for Jean. Jean will be the 40th inductee into the Quilter's Hall of Fame next week.
Jean, a board member and Valori Wells, stand for the accolades.
Ann's delight at winning one of the auction items.
Cake and champagne, what could be better?
My lovely table mates.
And a round of Happy Birthday for the quilt show. Next time, the Friday night Picnic in the Park.
