Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show

One of the items on my Bucket List is:  Attend Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.

I won't make it this year, but some year, God willing, I will make the pilgrimage to the world's largest outdoor quilt show, held the second Saturday of July each year since 1975 in the town of Sisters, Oregon.  Over 1300 quilts will be on display.

The show is spearheaded by Jean Wells Keenan and her talented daughter and fabric designer, Valori Wells Kennedy of  This mother-daughter team also manages The Stitchin Post quilt shop in Sisters.

I purchased this year's 18" x 24" poster, "Go To Town," designed by artist Kathy Deggendorfer.  I will hang it in my Girl Cave to help me keep the dream alive.

Someday I will go to Sisters.
