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 more traditional quilt on the left. See the bee on the left middle side?
This quilt has bee-patterned fabric. The pieces are small and yellow.
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.
This quilt had delicate feathers bordering a center scene.
This one had feathers made from small pieces of many different kinds of fabric.
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.
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.
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.
Here are a couple quilts with a fall holiday related theme.
Some of the quilts focused on places. This first one showed a city and beach beneath a starry sky.
The two on the left shown below show slices of city scenes, in monotone and color.
The second one from the right shows scenes from a trip to Italy.
I liked the colors and pattern of this cityscape. This was one of my favorites.
