2012 Springville Quilt Show

 My friend, Janine, and I went to the Springville Quilt Show on Saturday.  It is always a treat to see what others have been working on during the year.  This one is a Thousand Pyramids.  My Mother made one of these for each of my sons many years ago.
 This one was such a clever use of ties.  It looked like the quilter just threw blocks on the floor and sewed them together where ever they landed.
 I've seen this fan pattern for ties before and always love how they turn out.
 Several years ago I made a Double Wedding Ring but I thought this one was especially beautiful because of the extra pieces added to make a star design in every other ring.
This quilter entered a challenge where they were supposed to make a quilt from a phrase.  She chose "Bird Brain" and came up with a self portrait depicting her love for birds.  The book about birds of the world was authored by B. R. Ayne.

These were just a few of the many beautiful quilts on display.  More tomorrow.

Happy Quilting!                           Lynda

Gorgeous quilts, all of them. What a fun idea with the tie quilt and I had to laugh out loud at the "Bird Brain".
