Oregon State Fairs Quilted Forest

My Sister, Vicki, who lives in Washington State went to the Oregon State Fair this Labor Day and saw this display of quilts.  Here is the write up:



  A Quilted Forest - an installation of original art quilts during the Oregon State Fair.
Art quilters from around Oregon were invited to create their impression of a tree in fiber. The vision of the exhibit is to have many Quilted Trees hanging from the ceiling where visitors can walk among the art work as if they were walking though A Quilted Forest. Each piece is approximately 20 inches wide x 8 feet tall.
The imaginative artists have created visions of trees that are literal, figurative, inspired, interpretive and stylized! Well known art quilters have work in the exhibit, Jean Wells Keenan, June Jaeger, Vivienne Moore, Maureen Erhardt and more.

She said it was spectacular!

How I wish I could have seen this.
