Utah Quilt Guild Quilt Fest Quilt Show

This week I am hanging out at the Utah Quilt Guild Quilt Fest. I will be taking classes, learning tons, browsing the vendors market, and admiring the quilts for the quilt show!

These are just a few of my favorites from the quilt show. 

This one is titled Spot, Dots, Tittles and Jots by Linda Shafter and Mary Simpson. I love her use of ric-rac on this!

This one is called Selvage Spools by Liz Teerlink and Darcia Pinette. They used selvages as their threads! Isn't that cool!

This one is called Hope Chest by Linda Williams and Kim Peterson. I love the colors and the tiny piecing. I am not sure but those squares could be one inch big.

This one is Spring Chicken by Lorrie Ryther Hall. Lorrie is a member of my local chapter of the quilt guild, and I made a version of this quilt too. I love how her version turned out!

This is Sweet Urban Chiks by Mary-Jo Stringham. This is such a fun quilt. It looks like the edges were couched. She calls it Blooming Bias. It makes it look so soft!

This is Cheryl's Grandmother's Garden by Cheryl Barlow. This is another fantastic member of my local chapter. It took her 7 years to make all the flowers and 532 hours to hand quilt it! She is amazing like that! It also won the Best of Hand Quilting prize!

This is Fantastic Books and Where to Find Them by Leiloni Janell Johnson and Monica Steelman. I love this one because my daughter is really into fantasy books like these and it reminds me of her. I also love all the details!!

It was such a fun show! I love going to these things, seeing all the fun details, colors and designs, and recognizing the names on these works of art!

Next I will write about the classes I took.

Have fun quilting!
