The Sisters Oregon Quilt Show is one of those must see events for anyone who makes quilts or dreams of doing so. There are some Oregon events that are so big they demand a page of their own and this is one of them.
Over 1200 quilts from all over the United States and the world will be on display in the biggest outdoor quilt show in the world. The main street is blocked off for traffic and the town's buildings, fences, and balconies are hung with the most amazing quilts of all styles, sizes, and colors.
