Yes, the Great Oregon Steam-Up is an event held at the Powerland Heritage Park in Brooks, Oregon, and yes, there is a quilt show there. At this event, antique steam engine tractors are powered up. Also, a saw mill powered by steam is demonstrated along with many events such as tractor pull contests. Plus much, much more! I didn't see much of that part because I was a vendor at the quilt show which was held in the new Truck Museum (air-conditioned)! The quilt show was added to the event to have something special for the women who came with their husbands.
Here are some of the quilts.

There was a Quilt of Valor booth there too.

Here's a picture of one of the many steam powered pieces of equipment that were on display and demonstrated.
