Springville Quilt Show

Last Friday we stopped at the Springville Art Museum on our way to the lake. I had entered 2 quilts in the show and was not able to attend the opening. I did not win a ribbon, but two of my friends did win ribbons!
Florence's Egypt quilt!
I have known Florence for a lot of years! She is a wonderful friend and mentor! We are teaching together in September.

Nan's Quilt
I have only known Nan for a couple years now. She is in my former Salt Lake Quilt group. She does fabulous applique! I am looking forward to getting to know her better.

Anne's Agave Landscape
 Anne and I have know each other for a long time, way before either of us got into quilting. We met at the pool where our daughters were swimming on the same team.
Canyon Breezes by Anne
This is the piece that Anne made from our challenge fabrics! I love it! I wrote about the challenge in this recent post

Green Valleys By Lisa Chin
Odin my challenge piece
Here is my challenge piece. I had this idea of a boat. I am really not happy with the burlap border and that will come off when the show is over. I named the piece "Odin" because that is the name my Dad always used to name all his sailboats.

Accidental Star by Lisa

I met Lisa  when I was still in California. She was the newsletter editor for my Salt Lake group at the time and emailed me the newsletters. I had emailed her to tell her she was doing a great job and we started up an email conversation. It was a couple of years before I actually met her in person. She has become one of my dearest friends! She started the Star quilt at a retreat we both taught at in March. I knew she had altered it from the original configuration and I loved seeing it in person!

Rainbow Utah

Me with my quilt
I was pleased that this piece was accepted into the show. We were going through the show quickly and almost couldn't find it in the museum. I did not go into that hallway at first.  Please note, all the quilts have this top flop over thing going on (except for those small quilts on rods) because of the way they hang the quilts in this show. You have to put on a strip on the back that has a loose edge and they thumbtack the loose edge to the wall.

This is my Off the Wall post for this week!


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing the show in person this summer! I personally like the burlap on the sailboat. Maybe you would like it better if it were smaller? I'm glad your Rainbow piece also made it in the show, even if they did "bury" it in a corner. It being there is a good start.

  2. Saw your quilt Saturday, it was truly a highlight of an outstanding show. My wife and I both voted for it for the people's choice award!

    1. Matthew, thank you so much for the wonderful comment! It truly made my day! The show is very good this year, much better than the last couple of years. I have two quilts in the show, which one is your favorite? Thanks again!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you think about my post!
