Next morning, Daria and I had breakfast on the veranda overlooking the Descuetes River. Then we meet our party and went to get coffee at Albertsons? We went to Albertson's; I don't recall what happened there. On to Sisters we went. There was a long line of traffic, but I turned left, before town, and wound around and into town from the south, found parking, and we were off! We found out rapidly how quickly we can lose each other and we split off into smaller groups. It was fun and fabulous, especially with friends. Here are my top favorite quilts from the show.

|I failed to get the quilter's info on this one. I love the read hand stitching.|
I believe we were all exhausted after a day of walking around enjoying quilts, shops, and each others' company. We freshened up and went to the Craft Kitchen & Brew Pub for dinner in the beer garden. The BBQ Bib was fabulous and raves were made about the shrimp and grits. After we got back to the motel, Daria and I took a walk and found the, very nearby, GF McKay's restaurant, where we have planned to have breakfast with the gang in the morning. We walked on further to a walking path into a park an across a foot bridge. We witnessed a lovely sunset and moon rise.
Next morning, fabulous breakfast. I had the stuffed French toast. My last for a long time. We talked and talked, having such good company. We finally departed our motel, and proceeded to the last quilt store in Bend. I stayed outside and did not buy a single thing. I got an A+++. We departed with happy quilters all around and drove back to Boise, while Nancy diligently made hexagons in the back seat..
