Movin’ on up

July 3rd, 2011

Fish don’t fry in the kitchen; Beans don’t burn on the grill.
Took a whole lotta tryin’, Just to get up that hill.
And down the hill. And back up the hill. Up another hill.
Around 3 mountains (South Sister, Middle Sister, North Sister)…

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show here we come!
Portland Modern Quilt Guild heads to Sisters for the Outdoor Quilt Show!
The Portland Modern Quilt Guild is converging on the 36th Annual
Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show™
on Saturday, July 9th - and we even have an exhibit there! I hope everyone who’s going, will stop by and visit us. We’ll be in the courtyard between Paulina Springs Books and Jennifer Lake Gallery (Violet and I have the first shift).

At the Stitchin’ Post from 1-3, PMQG’s  Susan Beal will be there to do a book signing for her crazy awesome Modern Log Cabin Quilting book during the show.  Susan’s signing is not to be missed!

A bunch of us from PMQG that are attending the SOQS are armed with a phone and twitter account. No doubt we’ll be tweet’n and a twitpic’n - so keep an eye on us!
