First I broke the entire image into 36 squares, reflecting the 36 years of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. The scene includes our iconic Three Sisters Mountains, sunny skies of Central Oregon, pine trees, and, of course, flowing water. The patterning is pretty much “my style”; heaven forbid there would be a blank spot with only color and not some tiny dots or boxes! Look closely and you’ll see how the alternating blocks have varying degrees of pattern. Over the basic landscape blocks I added stylized twigs and leaves as a kind of screen. And then... the musicians! This symphonic group is made up of those natural chorus members: songbirds, crickets, dragonflies, pikas, and frogs... even a turtle for percussion as he jumps in the water. “Nature’s Symphony” invites you to come to Sisters for the 36th Annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. It’s a visual event you won’t want to miss!
