Animal quilts at the SOQS run the gamut in style and technique, but all are fabulously creative and big crowd pleasers. I love this dragon above. Ryan has requested a dragon quilt some day. Who knows when I'll get to it, but I can get some inspiration here. ** Remember to click to enlarge all the photos and see details.
This Charley Harper inspired quilt is based on his poster, "The Alpine Northwest". It was in the Portland Modern Quilt Guild exhibit, but seemed to fit this collection better.
June Jaeger's Pet Portrait exhibit is really special, partly because many of these pets are no longer living. These pieces are made by June's students and she has a new book out with the technique! Check it out here: Best Friends. June is Jean Wells' sister and also lives in Central Oregon.This frog is so cool because it's so huge! This is a bed sized quilt. Totally awesome!This giraffe was in the Teachers' Tent and is made by Vivienne Moore. Those sections are all pieced. So cool!
This last bunch are the Whimsical Cow quilts made by students of Mary Lou Weidman. These are just so much fun! I was planning to go back on Sunday to really take them in, but was not feeling well. At least I have these photos.
Well, that was fun, wasn't it! Next time I'll post the California State Park quilts. They are really amazing too!
