The Big Day

I'm going!


On Saturday, July 9th, I'll be hopping on the Fabric Depot bus with a passel of other quilters to go to the 2011 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.  I've done this a few times and it's always a blast.  It's cheaper than paying for gas, and you can get your fabric freak on with a bunch of other fiber lovers along the way.  It's the ultimate quilt show pre-funk.

But not only will I be enjoying the day in a city completely overrun with quilts & quilters... I'll be showing a quilt for the very first time!  Yup.  I managed to get my registration packet turned in on time and my Happy Batiks quilt has been accepted.  This isn't exactly an exclusive event, but nevertheless, I'm excited to be a contributor rather than just an observer.

So the next time you see this quilt, it will be hanging out with a bunch of other quilts on the side of a building somewhere in Sisters.

I can't wait!

That's awesome!
I'm kind of not sure what I'm more jealous of: The fact you get to go to this or that you have decent fabric stores nearby! Ha ha!
