The day started without a cloud in the sky for the 37th Annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show and there was a big turn out. The Portland Modern Quilt Guild was invited to have a Special Exhibit for the 2nd year in a row and here are our quilts.
We were also fortunate to meet up with the Eugene Modern Quilt Guild and the Central Oregon Modern Quilt Guild. There was a great turn out and we all cooled off with some watermelon and snacks. It seems like we were too busy socializing to take photos which really is a good sign.
Then for the first time in 37 years the show was rained out. The volunteers for the show got down over 1200 quilts in a remarkably short amount of time with what I hear was a minimal 10-20 quilts getting wet. Susan and I were on duty and with the help of fellow members got the 30 or so quilts in our zone safely out of the rain just in time for a torrential downpour.
Thank you to our member volunteers that helped throughout the day and during the rain.
