For the first time in its 37-year history, the show had to close "significantly early" (2:30 pm) because of an approaching thunderstorm. As soon as the call was made, visitors rushed to help the quilt show volunteers with taking down 1,400 quilts.
|Thunder in the distance . . . down came our quilts!|
|10 min. later . . . torrential rain, and no quilts in sight.|

Lisa took these final 2 photos while driving
from Sisters to Bend, after the show.2012 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show poster by Kathy Deggendorfer. We each started with the same group of 9" fabric swatches and finished with these unique art quilts. Where to from here?
