A Week at Quilters Affair

I love teaching at Quilters Affair in Sisters Oregon. Jean Wells and her daughter Valori along with all their wonderful staff and volunteers put on a fabulous week of exciting events in this very special place. It starts on Monday with five days of classes.

The first evening we are treated to a teacher dinner at Jeans home. Jean and John had just moved into their new home and this is the fabulous view from their back yard.

It is catered by a local catering company. The food and the company is always wonderful. What a great way to meet the 20 teachers who teach at this event.

The first two days I taught blocks from my quilt Magnolia. We had a full class of twenty enthusiastic students who played with wool and embellishments.
This flower block was made with a wonderful old striped sweater and velvet rick-rack and the leaves were couched with hand dyed yarn.

I love the bright and clear colors used in this flower block especially the fun cotton stem.

I also had two wonderful ladies form England in my class and they needleturn and embellished this great flower block using cottons, wools and velvets.

This is a fun house block using this great polka dot background and rick-rack trim.

Here is another great bias stem and couched flower.

It is always great to see all the creativity developing in my classes and I can’t wait to see the finished products. I will be posting all week about this event so visit soon to see more. You will be in for a treat.

    Wonderful pictures! Thanks for giving us a little peek at your class. I was there for the show on Saturday. One of these years I'm going to have to take some time off work and stay for the whole week!
