Magical Decorated Door Exhibit in Ashland, OR

Our door quilts, along with a Journal Quilt Retrospective from Terry Tobey and filler quilts from Janis Stoker, were hung at the Family Massage Education Center, located at 1081 East Main Street in Ashland.  Quilts are expected to hang the month of November 2013.

Although the lighting wasn’t the best for my wee camera, the quilts are pictured below as a group and then individually.  Thanks to all of you who participated.

The Quilted Forest Revealed

The Photos below are of the trees on exhibit at the US Bank in Ashland for July and August.  Following this exhibit, they will be shown at the Leavenworth, WA Quilt Show in September.  Nice job to all of our quilters who participated!

The new Bank Manager, Mei Wen, was delighted with the trees!  It turns out that a tree just outside the bank’s door was mistakenly chopped down, so she was excited to have some trees to look at.

First, here is a panorama of six of the trees.  One tree arrived late and is not in the panorama.  (Remember to click on the picture for a closer look)

Rogue Art Quilt…

Rogue Art Quilters’ Challenge

“Meet Me on the Bricks”

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) is an integral part of the small town of Ashland, Oregon. Therefore, the theme “Meet Me On the Bricks” was selected as the latest Rogue Art Quilters’ challenge. The “Bricks” refers to the meet-up area for patrons attending plays at the Bowmer, Elizabethan Stage, and New Theater. OSF also hosts a free “Green Show” on the bricks each summer night, with musicians, jugglers, and dancers entertaining theater-goers. As the sun begins its descent, music fills the air, locals and tourists smile at one other, and an occasional sign is held, pleading for tickets to a sold-out performance.

This quilt challenge required members to incorporate the OSF theme and use the same brown mosaic “brick” fabric. The quilt width was set at 20-24 inches with no binding.

The quilts will be on display at the U.S. Bank, 30 N. 2nd St., Ashland, OR from July 2 to August 31, 2012.
