Two Rivers, Three Sisters and the Water Falls of Whychus

I know I have inundated you with quilt slide shows this week...and you may be crying UNCLE!!!  But I have saved a special one for today.  Many of the quilts this week are from quilters all over the world.  Today's slideshow showcases the amazing local talent...no, I am not talking about the Fabric Stalkers...although, besides being crazy, fun and cute we are talented in our own way.   No...this talent is way beyond!

The Quilts for Two Rivers and the Waterfalls of Whychus is part of a campaign to restore two protected wild and scenic rivers, Whychus Creek and the Metolius.  Each quilt panel is the individual quilter's interpretation of the section of the waterway they were given to recreate and when hung together enable the viewer to almost hear the water flowing.

Clearwater Creek Gallery is a must see art gallery and was the location of the Quilts for Two Rivers and the Waterfalls of Whychus quilts during Quilt Show week.  Their new location, just across the street from the Sister's Coffee Company offers not only art...but food, wine and eventually live music.

I also couldn't help but take a few more photos of art quilts hanging in the gallery at the end of this slide show because they were so amazing!

  2. I could watch a slide show every day - thanks for sharing with us! Those quilts were beautiful, and you chose the perfect background music, I felt like I was right there on the river's edge. Definitely a treasure worth saving.

  4. I love the pictures from Sisters so do not apologize. And NO ONE has yet to show these from the show. I have seen them when they were first "put together". Oh, to be able to purchase just one.... but alas, they would be far better for one owner and displayed in public from time to time.... we can dream. Keep those pictures coming...and THANKS
