Local Madras author, Katherine Weaver, exhibited three quilts in the Sisters Quilt Show on Saturday, July 14.
She has been quilting for many years, but only recently taught herself the paper-piecing method. This quilting technique allows the artist to achieve exact lines and perfect points.
There were over 1,300 quilts exhibited in Sisters this year, and the crowd was enthusiastic and varied.
"Spectators from all over the world attended the renowned event. The weather was perfect for the morning, until the thunderstorm hit at 3 p.m., Saturday," Weaver noted, adding, "The volunteer staff is trained to protect the quilts from inclement weather and they were taken inside immediately."
Weaver will also be submitting her three quilts to the Jefferson County Fair and is hoping to earn a position at the Oregon State Fair.
Quilting gives Weaver a creative break from writing her upcoming book, "Seeing God in the Simple Things."
This inspirational book of short essays and devotionals will be released in early fall from Tate Publishing. For more information on Weaver's upcoming book visit http://www.booksbykatherine.com.
