Let's continue this tour of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt show with some more of my favorites - Animal Quilts!
Ok, it may not be from Portland, but 'put a bird on it' anyway. I really loved this one, the colors, the stitching, it's delightful!
It may be the middle of July, but there were a number of holiday quilts on display. I thought this was a fun use of the 'snowball' block, but the blocks are just the canvas for a beautiful quilted flower design.
This 8-pointed Christmas star was really striking from a distance.
In addition to thematic or pictoral quilts, there were several abstract and geometric quilts.
Ok, as much as I love the one in the middle, below, I was disappointed to see it in the show because just this week I'd had the brillianly 'original' idea to do something very similar in green. I guess there really is nothing new under the sun. Either that or I'd seem the idea in a magazine & just forgot about it. Nevertheless, I still plan on doing mine.
And on the theme of diversity in quilting - some quilters love cats, it's true, but some love robots even more!
That's two posts down, I've got at least two more to go. Stay tuned for more awesome quilts!
