Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show :: Part 7

2018 SOQS (57).JPG

The courtyard of the Clearwater Gallery is a favorite stop for everyone visiting the show.  The Central Oregon SAQA group always shows the current year's challenge here and for the past two years this is where the Storybook quilts are located.  

The SAQA challenge this year had the theme Threads that Bind and the format is 18" x 40" either horizontal or vertical.  There are some great quilts here.  Sorry my photos aren't great the dappled light made it difficult.  

This is the last post for this year's quilt show.  I hope you enjoyed the little tour and are maybe thinking of visiting someday if you haven't been to it yet.

The next group of photos are from the Storybook Quilts.  This is the second year for this fundraiser where local quilters make pieces that measure about 24" x 30".  The pages are turned by volunteers throughout the day giving visitors a chance to see and ask questions about each quilt.  I didn't get photos of all the quilts, but you can see below there is quite a variety of styles.  Something to please everyone!

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show :: Part 6

2018 SOQS (114).JPG

Last year was the first year that the Cherrywood Fabrics challenge quilts came to the Sisters Quilt Show.  That was the Lion King exhibit.  I thought that was pretty awesome, but this Van Gogh exhibit is just amazing!  The only quibble I have is that the exhibit room is a bit too small for so many visitors.  I could have taken photos of every single quilt, it was that good.  But it was crowded and hot and it seemed pointless to try, so when I discovered they sell an exhibit catalog and could ship it for free I was all in!  If you haven't yet heard of these challenges (hard to believe, but there's always a possibility) check out the website here.  You can still buy catalogs from all the previous challenges (Wicked, The Lion King and Van Gogh) and you can pre-order this year's challenge Prince (lots of purple!).  These really are beautiful little gems.  Enjoy!

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show :: Part 5

Hey everybody- are you ready for Quilt Camp?  This special exhibit was organized by Kathy Deggendorfer to celebrate her new fabric line called Quilter's Road Trip.  What fun to see all these adorable vintage trailers in one spot.  I am making notes for future trailer ornaments.  Enjoy!

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show 2018 :: Part 4

The Mt Bachelor Quilters' Guild had a strong showing at the Sisters Quilt Show.  My guild had a special exhibit from last year's challenge "Periodic Table of the Elements".  I'm sure there were many guild member's quilts in other special exhibits as well as the general show too.  I'm highlighting the challenge quilts first and then a special exhibit of the quilts of Jill Monley, past president of the guild and master quilter.

As I said above Jill is a master quilter.  She is proficient in many different techniques from applique to piecing and she also teaches machine quilting.  Her quilts are all her own designs.  Jill's quilts had their own special exhibit at the Five Pine Lodge just on the east edge of town.

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show 2018 :: Part 3

One of the nice things about the Sisters Quilt Show is that there's something for everyone.  This post is all about animals in quilts.  There were some really fun ones and many were made from patterns or kits, but the pink horse above was done freehand. Isn't it wonderful!
