It’s taken me awhile to go through all my pictures from the 2017 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, but here are my favorite quilts from the show. I didn’t spend as much time there this year as I did the first time I went in 2015, but it was a good show nonetheless.
In case it wasn’t obvious, this is going to be an image-heavy post.
The details on this little quilt are great. I love the quilted cursive letters.
There were a number of great quilts being shown in the QuiltCon section. Unfortunately, they were mostly hung behind these decorative columns.
I love these simple, happy trees. They look like lollipops.
I am really glad the Steel Bridge doesn’t look like this when I drive over it. I love the pops of red in the otherwise monochrome quilt.
Ok, so I guess I like pops of red in any quilt. What’s black and white and red all over? A quilt that I will probably take a picture of.
There were some good colorful quilts, too!
The description for this quilt of the Brooklyn Bridge made me laugh: “The inspiration … came from [a photo in the] April 2016 issue of Money magazine. I liked the perspective in the photo created by the cables. I thought it would be fun to reproduce that in a quilt. I was wrong.”
There was also a special exhibit of Sue Spargo quilts which were amazing. Looking at all that embroidery and hand quilting made my fingers hurt. The details were just stellar.
I can’t wait for next year, when I’ll maybe have actually gotten around to finishing a quilt that I can submit to the show!
