Friends! I’m thrilled to share that I’m the poster artist for the 48th Annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. What an honor!

Since moving here a few years ago, I have so loved this beloved event. Imagine an entire little town covered in artistic quilts and thousands and thousands of fabric artists / enthusiasts in town for all the quilt showings and festivities. It is a HUGE, if not THE highlight of the year here in Sisters, Oregon. As an artist, I find it wildly fascinating and inspiring. It makes me want to learn quilting, which I intend to do! 

When the incomparable Jean Wells , who founded the quilt show almost 50 years ago, called and asked if I’d do the poster this year, I could hardly believe it! 
Of course, I said an enthusiastic YES and went to work on creating an image that included the Three Sisters Mountains that our town is known for. It was a wonderful challenge, as I don’t normally include mountains / trees in my work. I loved how it turned out and am so honored to be a part of such an iconic event.

Come Take A Class With Me During The Show!


I will be teaching a couple of collage painting classes on 7/7/23, the day before the quilt show. I’d love to see you! You can register for my class and tons of other classes, too, over at the Stitchin Post website right here. There are TWO classes on 7/7. One in the morning and the other in the afternoon. 

Big love, Kelly Rae

The sweet gift of amazement from a barista

The sweet gift of amazement from a barista

  Recently, I was ordering my usual oat milk mocha at my favorite coffee shop when the young man at the counter, a barista, casually asked, "Whatcha doing today?" I shrugged my shoulders and answered, "Not much, just a little work." "Oh, cool," he said. "What do...

On midlife, becoming, emerging

  The snow came this week, falling gently and creating a soft, white, wonder. I've been waking up to its bright white invitations to create beauty, to make a cup of tea, to read, to snuggle in.   I've been full of thoughts lately. So. Many. Thoughts. Much of...
