the power of red



At the beginning of this year I was dreaming about maybe going to an outdoor quilt show in Sisters, Oregon. It's a pretty well known show in the quilting world. They have a quilt challenge and I began the quilt in Jan. or Feb., not knowing if I would go to the show...but wouldn't it be fun to have a quilt hanging there if I did?



I finished the quilt. While waiting to enter the outdoor show in July, I entered it into a local art show and won a first place ribbon! There weren't many entrants in my category, but it was still very exciting.



This past weedend the Sisters outdoor Quilt show was held. I wasn't able to go this year, but my quilt did! Maybe next year I will attend the show WITH the quilt I enter. :)

  1. Dear Beth,
    Love the red! Congrats on having a quilt at Sisters. I didn't know they had a challenge-where did you find the info?

    I like your Breaking Traditions piece, too. I'm also in that show.

    Keep up the good work!
