Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, set 2

Exhibitor: Valerie Wells
(co-owner of The Stitchin' Post in Sisters)
Title: Moon Over Mountains

Exhibitor: Penny Dalton
Title: Beachy Keen

Yes, this is a quilted car. the Lebanon, Oregon, quilting guild stitched this to help advertise their own quilt show.

The show featured an appearance by the quilters of Gees Bend, Alabama, and included a set of "challenge" quilts stitched by employees of The Stitchin' Post. They were to create their own quilt "in the manner of" the Gees Bend quilts. This one was made by Annette Caldwell, and she called it "Insignificant Stripes."

Also part of the challenge, this is a cute quilt made from the legs of jeans by Sally Brittain. She calls it "Gees Bend Picnic."
