The Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show™ (SOQS) is internationally recognized as the world's largest outdoor quilt show and quilt sale displaying more than 1300 quilts representing fiber artists from around the world. It is always held on the second Saturday in July.
SOQS accepts a small number of group Special Exhibit quilts that are unified by a common theme. For the past few years, PMQG has been included in this display of special exhibits at the show. With so many quilts from around the world, the show can only feature a limited number and size of quilts in each exhibit.
The PMQG Special Exhibit will feature 20 member quilts. If we receive more than 20 submissions, we will vote via jury, and the quilts with the highest percentage of votes will be accepted into the exhibit. Please keep in mind that in the event a quilt is not selected for the group exhibit, individual members can still submit their own quilts, as members of PMQG.
PMQG's theme for our Special Exhibit at the 2020 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show is Bauhaus.
Quilts must be at least 40” on any side and not more than 102” on any side.
Quilts must be 3 layers and quilted (not tied)

Volunteer Hostesses Needed!
We will need 4-8 volunteers to hostess the area where our quilts will be hung. Members whose submitted quilts are accepted into the exhibit and who attend Sisters are strongly encouraged to be a volunteer hostess.
As volunteers, you will be assigned to a section of town IN AND AROUND where our quilts are on display. Each shift is 2 hours and hostesses are ‘on patrol’, keeping an eye on the quilts in the entire section, not just the quilts in your special exhibit. We will have tables and chairs setup and will be spending the day there, greeting visitors and answering questions about our quilts.
Join us in this fun day of sunshine and quilts!
