Quilt for Two Rivers: Triggering Childhood Memories

April 23, 2012 at 5:00 am 2 comments

Fiber artists collaborating on the Quilt for Two Rivers are blogging about their quilt panels for the 40-foot masterpiece-in-progress which honors Sisters, Oregon’s Treasured Landscapes.  Featured this week:

“TRIGGERING CHILDHOOD MEMORIES OF THE METOLIUS”

How does a piece of fiber art come into being?  Here’s a peek into the mind of quilt artist June Jaeger, who shares her Quilt for Two Rivers project scrapbook with us.

It starts with articles and reflections on June’s grandma’s cabin on the Metolius River…

…then sketches and more notes…

…a field trip with photos of promising scenery…

…and finally, a work of art!
