One of the most highly anticipated art shows is happening this weekend in Sisters. It's time for the 2011 Sister's Outdoor Quilt Show. Executive Director Ann Richardson says the will have about 1300 quilts scattered around town on every available wall space or balcony. She says people travel from around the globe to view the colorful and creative quilts: “For some people, it's a once in a life time and for some people it's once in a year. We have a couple of gals that come, one from Scotland and one from England, and they came for their once in a lifetime visit eight years ago. And they've come every year since. And then there are people who say: "I’ve always wanted to com, it's on my bucket list" and they're finally going too make it for the first time ever."
Richardson says the show has expanded to what they are calling "Save It For Sunday" where there will be extra events for people to attend on Sunday, including lectures and more quilts. The Sister's Outdoor Quilt show starts Saturday ay 9:30 am.
