National Park Service Centennial Quilt Show - Inspired by the National Parks

We're so excited to share a very special quilt exhibit with the public. This is the only currently scheduled showing in the Pacific Northwest.

Sunrise on Lake Roosevelt

Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area is our local National Park Service managed area. As part of the NPS centennial celebrations, they have sponsored the 'Inspired by National Parks' Quilt Exhibit curated by Donna Desoto.

The show runs in Coulee Dam at Lake Roosevelt Elementary School Gymnasium
July 1-4, 2016

Friday 1pm-4pm
Saturday 10am-4pm
Sunday 10am-4pm
Monday 9am-1pm

Here is a sneak peek that I took at the start of the setup process.

There are 177 quilts. For the 59 Parks that are managed by the NPS, there is a flora, fauna and landscape quilt. The landscape may be vertical or horizontal.
Taken from the site a preview of Rocky Mountain National Park.

A beautiful book has been printed by Schiffer Publishing and is available at the Grand Coulee Dam Visitor Center Discover Your NW Bookstore.

I'll have special hours this weekend on Sunday and Monday (10am-2pm).

I have brought in several Gwen Carreon national park inspired designs and have patterns for them as well.

Hope to see you!
