Quilted in Honor~at the Sisters 39th Annual Outdoor Quilt Show

On the lawn outside of the Sisters Public School Administration building, was a large display of quilts paying tribute to and financially benefiting military personnel and their families. Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show was one of the 18 national locations chosen to host the Quilted in Honor quilt collection. This is a fundraising initiative sponsored by Island Batik, and includes a collection of 50 celebrity quilters, including Alex Anderson, Rob Appell, Eleanor Burns, Carol Doak, Pat Sloan, Ricky Tims, Angela Walters, Scott Hansen and more.

Not all the quilts were red, white and blue or stars and stripes either; some used camouflage fabric and a few quilts have red poppies. So many beautiful and creative quilts! Here are my favorite ones:
I loved this quilting. I took this close-up because you couldn't see it in the quilt otherwise. There were other similar quilting objects in other areas of the quilt. This close-up belongs to the very last quilt photo at the end of this post.

This is the quilt where each white block was quilted with a different motif like the Liberty Bell from the first photo above.
