We are seeking proposals for our next Quilt Garden. The project includes a signature garden space at the ranch that is inspired by a quilt design, along with the creation of a quilt fashioned to reflect the garden space. Proposals are sought from local Central Oregon quilt makers, artists and/or designers experienced with quilt patterns.
Proposals for the 2023 growing season are due March 31, 2023 and selection will be made in the first week of April. The garden will be created at Pine Meadow Ranch in a 10-foot-by-10-foot bed as a ‘Quilt Block Design’ or a ‘Quilt Design’ of plants and flowers. Planting for this growing season will begin in early April. Implementation of the garden space quilt pattern will be led by the PMRCAA’s Garden Manager, and the accompanying quilt is to be completed in time for display at the 2023 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.
The Quilt Garden program will be a permanent asset at PMRCAA, and the plantings within the bed will be changed annually for new artists. Every year, signage with the title and designer’s name will be placed near the bed, along with other celebratory and programming activities planned. Other outreach will also be done throughout the season to highlight the chosen designer, and the finalist will receive a stipend of $750.
The inaugural Quilt Garden was launched in 2021 to honor the nationally recognized quilting tradition in Sisters.
