(NOTE: THE 2018 SISTERS COUNTRY QUILT IS MAKING ITS DEBUT JULY 14 AT THE SISTERS OUTDOOR QUILT SHOW. IF YOU AREN'T ABLE TO SEE THE QUILT IN PERSON AT THE SHOW, YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT THE QUILT AND READ ITS COMMENTS ON OUR SPECIAL PAGE DEDICATED TO THE QUILT, HERE.)
The Sisters Country—Our Values, Our Vision—signature quilt that many of you helped create has moved into the quilting stage. During the past couple weeks, the quilt—which features more than 180 local sentiments—was sewn together. Seeing the squares brought together, each square with its own unique feel and message, has been very rewarding and exciting. The quilt offers such a nice metaphor for community. Thank you again to everyone who inked their values and visions—and even their sketches—onto the quilt. Special thanks to East of the Cascades Quilters and to generous materials suppliers, like Stichin' Post and Kathy Deggendorfer Designs. You all made this C4C “Community Through Arts” project possible. Stay tuned for updates, including an overview of themes that emerged as are residents contributed to this legacy textile art piece. And remember to look for the community quilt during the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show—Saturday, July 14.
