Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show

The yearly Sisters quilt show was Saturday and although it leans toward the modern side more and more it is still a fun summer show to attend.
Here are a few highlights:
This aqua color was very prevalent throughout the show this year!
The side wall of the Stitchin' Posts are hung with the employee challenge quilts.



I've been to show several years ago when the main street through Sisters was not closed for the show. Traffic would back up for miles!
There are quilt rescue teams throughout town ready to rescue a quilt that has fallen, come partially unhooked or any other tragedy that may befall a quilt in an outdoor venue.
This quilt was one of my favorites. How darn cute is that?




This was another one I adored! Check out the details below.  Made by Tonye Belinda Phillips.




This was a lovely way to use and enjoy French General fabrics.
Ran into local friends, and standing in front of another French General fabric quilt!


A lovely traditional quilt using lots of different reds!

Of course, there were many more lovely quilts, but these are the first few that really caught my eye!

Let's make it a wonderful week!

  4. Loved seeing all the Sisters quilts. I think most all current quilts are “to the modern”. My preference is antique, 1930’s but I still enjoy seeing what’s out there. Everything is cyclical.

  5. The quilts with the ''dolls'' and or houses are all darling, esp the circular one. Not exactly modern, so whimsical and fun.

  8. I like the idea of a quilt rescue squad. Sometimes I could use one in my sewing room. :)

  12. Hello Lori, thankyou for sharing your wonderful photos. I loved the tie dyed indigo quilt, as well as the ladies in a circle. How lovely to have an outdoor quilt show, we dare not do that here in England, we have too much (often unexpected) rain!

  17. I was watching the Quilt Show this morning with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. One of their guests was a lady from Los Angeles that said she started the Modern Quilt Guild. She explained how it brought so many people together who had not found a nitch elsewhere. The modern quilt making has certainly taken off and it shows in what is displayed at quilt shows.
