Saturday was the day of the show and we were up early to drive to Sisters . If you don't know much about the show check out the website. The quilts are hung all around the town on buildings and throughout the week there are classes and the Gee's Bend women are there showing quilts and speaking. While the show has been going on for 36 years and is definitely focused on the traditional quilter there were modern quilts sprinkled throughout the show and our guild had a special exhibit in our own area. We received so much enthusiastic feedback and had such fun. There were people from all over even from my hometown Tulsa where they just started a Modern Quilt Guild. Amy one of the organizers of The Sewing Summit was in from Utah and stopped by. I am even more excited about that now! There was also a nice article in the show magazine about modern quilting and our guild, we are on page 26. So many of the traditional and modern quilts were inspiring it made me want to just get home and sew. I'm gushing now here's what you (Jen from B.C.A.) really want to see the photos. These are quilts from our guild exhibit, I am sorry I don't have photos of all our quilts I assure you they are all amazing!!

I was a little worn out by the time the show was all over but it was completely worth it and the hot tub was a welcome site.
