3 in 1…

Over these past three days, my plan has been simple: post to blog today… Well, on

Unraveled Wednesday, I realized what I was doing not quite right  stitching the Confetti Quilt block using the Foundation Paper Piecing technique. Simply put, I was using the full 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper when I only needed the actual block with just about a .25 margin around the outer perimeter. Duh! Smaller + smarter makes all the difference in the world – not that I’ve yet mastered the technique but I am on the right route …

  3 on Thursday, my agenda included: several loads of laundry; a long phone conversation with my sister; a two hours’ beak, midday for a a bit of “daily pages” creation; joining Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Book Club session: Find Your Book People (i.e., people in your community who might enjoy chatting on an informal basis about books they read ); and a telephone conference with Norman’s medical team. It is now well past 6 PM, EST – time to prepare a light meal; soon, it will be time to join an 8 PM, EST Zoom session … Whatever happened to the day? Might as well wait til tomorrow to post … and so tomorrow is Today –

+TGIF, This is the week for the annual – 46 years and counting – Outdoor Quilt Show in Sisters, Oregon; last year, ’twas cancelled due to COVID and this year, the week long classes were held virtually. However, the quilts, from quilters near and far will be hung/displayed tomorrow, Saturday, outside on buildings and from trees throughout the Town of Sisters and also virtually*. Visitors – some too from around the globe – are expected to descend on the Town – pop 2K+- on Saturday. Were times different, I might’ve been one; I’d like to have been one. I’ve not been to Sisters since 2017 and frankly, I miss my trips to my favorite spot on the planet. I reserve hope for 2022… and I’m grateful this year’s SOQS is on! Thanks to modern technology, I can at least view the quilts from home. Almost the next best thing to being there! * You too can see the quilts on SOQS day – starting 7 am Pacific Time,  just click on the link above and ENJOY!  

Cheers~  

P.S.  This week, in honor of the Quilt Show and in lieu of being in Sisters, I’ve worn T-shirts acquired since 2009.  It’s the next best thing to being there. ;-)).  Have a great weekend!

  1. Thanks to you, I planned a visit to Sisters when we were in Oregon two years ago. There was no quilt show, but we had a lovely day there. I’ll try to check in tomorrow to take a look at the quilts.

  2. You are wise to skip the crowds Honore. I am back to wearing masks indoors at shops and libraries etc. I did go to a quilt show at the chicago botanic gardens one year and was gob smacked!!

  3. I love this Three-in-One catch up! And I am nodding at your thoughts on how easily the day gets away from one. True that… so true that! I hope your weekend was full of all good things!

  4. The days do slip away. I like your three in one post though. I have a quilting friend who lives in western Montana. We always talked about going to the Sisters quilt show but never made it. Sadly, she is now quite elderly and frail and is unable to travel. I wonder if I am too late for the link.

  5. Your days are sounding very full … glad you could enjoy the beauty of those quilts (i think I was too late). Your Confetti quilt sounds very complicated!
