The art of quilters in Sisters, Oregon: LAPC

When I was strolling down Hood Avenue on 9 July 2022, something across the street caught my eye. I was there to see the art of quilters at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. Though the event has taken breaks due to wildfire smoke and pandemics, it proudly celebrated its 47th year in 2022.

A WOW! quilt

I had to take a closer look at this quilt. WOW! I think it was my favorite of the whole show. The intricate stitching and subtle changes in color drew me towards it. There are signs telling you not to touch the quilts, but I really wanted to touch this one.

I continued my walk and noted some of the interesting architecture in this western-themed town. This clock business was one of my favorites. I’ve always wanted to live in a house with a tower.

Attention getters

Some quilts attracted a lot of attention and I had to wait for visitors to pass by before snapping a picture. Here is one of those.

Fruit and plant patterns

The quilt below included a crop of pineapples. I remember my Hawaiian auntie telling me they symbolize welcome, happiness, and the hospitality associated with the islands.

Plant patterns were popular. This one included cactus. I like it because it reminded me of the cactus blooming in my own garden right now.

Well, that’s it for my coverage of the 2022 Sisters Outdoor Quilt show. I hope you were impressed by the art of quilters.

After spending a lot of time editing this three-part post, I think it’s time for me to zone out and watch a little TV. 😉
