More quilts in Sisters, Oregon: LAPC

Once again, I am sharing images of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show on 9 July 2022. Today I’ll show quilts with critters, people, holidays, and places.

Buzzing bees on quilts

One of the groups attending the event had a bee-themed challenge.

The one below was my favorite. It’s simple but complex at the same time.

This “Phoebee” quilt had a lot of quilting stiches.

This one had a more traditional design.

Since we were there before the event started, participants were still in the process of hanging quilts.

I liked the bright colors and patterns of this one.

Another insect up close

I liked this preying mantis one because of its design and because these insects are so interesting. We had them as pets years ago. I’ve seen a couple species of mantises in our yard in Bend.

Fine feathers

This quilt had delicate feathers bordering a center scene.

More quilts with critters – Cats and dogs

This colorful quilt showed cats in various poses. Did you notice one with an eye patch and another wearing a beard?

Here’s another colorful quilt. This one shows a dog in the same pose, but each square uses different colored fabric.

Elephants and other creatures

The quilt on the left below shows an elephant in several of the pieces. The one on the right was one of my favorites. It includes, fruit, leaves, birds, and mammals.

People on quilts

There were a few quilts with portraits of people. The one on the left below captured their expressions so well.

Here it is from a distance. Flowers in bloom helped frame the art hung outside the buildings.

The second one from the right below shows a stolen embrace beneath an umbrella. The quilt on the right side shows a bed piled high with quilts with a person resting on top. It reminded me of the Princess and the Pea story.

This intricate quilt included portrayals of people from all over the world.

International people quilt

This one showed masks bordered by colorful flowers and bright bands of color.

Of course people are a big part of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. The picture below shows a few of the 10,000+ visitors.

Quilters like to recognize holidays on quilts. This quilt shows scenes of Christmas.

Christmas quilt

Here are three more winter holiday quilts. The man standing in front of them had a “jolly” personality. St. Nick in disguise?

The quilts on this building included a couple focusing on holidays.

  1. Thank you for sharing the images of the Sisters Quilt show. It’s been a long time since I attended.

    • You’re welcome, Vikki! Hope you feel better soon. I’ll be posting one more batch of quilt photos on Friday.

  2. Oh gosh, I was going to tell you which were my favourites, but every time I scrolled down I found a couple more to add to the list! Certainly that circular cityscape is among them, the sunflowers and both the feather ones. And of course the elephants!

    • Thanks, Sarah! Yes, it’s hard to choose. I’m doing one more post on Friday that includes my favorite. 😁
