Bend, Redmond, Sister's Quilt shops.

After stopping in at Quiltworks I continued over to BJ's Quilt Basket.  I'd been here last at least 10+ years ago when it was in a different location.
 Bird on a Wire by Wendy Williams Wild Blooms and Colorful Creatures.  I bought this book awhile ago and am looking forward to having some fun with her designs.
 Loved this Modern twist on an Urban Skyline.
Buggy Barn houses and trees.
 Cute quilt by the front door.
 A look back before leaving, large store with all sorts of things to enjoy.
 Next stop in Bend was Sew Many Quilts.  Sorry no outside picture but spotted these cute wool mini banners on display.
 Hey, wait a minute those are the ones I'm getting from Primitive Gatherings in Wisconsin!
 Cute snowman, the missing one is a Pineapple Welcome banner that was too blurred to share.
 Great little wool pillow.
 Touch of Halloween and Autumn in the corner.
 Love those sunflowers.  Got a couple of cute gifts, but won't share pictures until they are given away.
 In Redmond I found Material Girl Fabrics new location, they just moved here in February.  What a delightful house!
 Just inside the door above the large display of fabric in gold lettering it says Welcome, over the doorway to the left it says Be Warm, Be Welcome, Be At Home.  Very hard not to feel that way here.
 Each room has some wonderful things to look at and admire.
 Loved this Ghastlie's Hanging.
 A closer peek of what she did.
 Onto the next room, Love!
 Great fabric and cute bird appliques.
 Interesting triangle play.
 Quilted with lovely curves.
 French Postcards.
 Love the background fabric she used and all the cute postcards.
 More inspiration.
 Across the street to Coho Coffee, had I known they did light breakfast I would have eaten here.
 These three guys greeted me and wanted to know why I hadn't taken a picture of Coho Coffee and only the quilt shop.  Turns out the owner is on the left and his cousin owns the quilt shop and his wife was helping her out.  So after I retrieved my camera, I left it on the counter of the quilt shop I took their picture.  Great coffee and convenient location across from the quilt shop.
 I decided to drive into Sisters to see what the Stitchin' Post looked like before Quilt Show day.  Saturday this wall will be covered with quilts!
 Last year my friend Anna from Woolie Mammoth had this quilt on her design board it is called Slide Show she was using some Glamping fabric and had just her squares laid out.
 Great Kaffe Fasset fabrics.
 Lots of wonderful quilts on display.  The Sister's Raffle Quilt is the blue stars on white background.
 More great colours and designs.
 Love this one over the fireplace.
 Paper pieced great use of the red gingham fabric.
 A look through the fish eye mirror in the corner.
 I think this is a Tonye Phillips/Sue Spargo collaboration.
Coming up Friday night picnic in the park and quilt show pictures.

Looks to me like Sisters has gone modern...even the shops have gone that way! It's getting harder and harder to find shops that knock my socks off. Thanks for the tour!
