More of the Tucson Show!

This year, 2012, is the Centennial for the State of Arizona, and there was a Quilt Challenge.  Here are some of the entries for that...



Below is a quilt that depicts famous Arizona women, including Lozen, the only female Apache warrior....I had just read about Lozen in the book I added to my sidebar on A Colorful World.
 These next two were special display quilts from the challenge....

 They were both unbelievable!  Here is the closeup of the second one....
 This explains about this amazing quilt...

More wonderful quilts from the show! These two are my favorites of several really whimsical entries....

 Then on to another very sweet applique that uses the black blanket stitch...
 a closeup of the one above...
 another entry using the black background that is so stunning!

 a reall interesting wall hanging...
 one of my favorites for its wonderful use of color!
 again, some awesome appliques...

 a great pineapple quilt design...
 closeup of above...
 a wonderful geometric!
 This was called Mexican Tiles, and I just love it!
 Those are three-demisional  flowers on the border of this beauty, and the squares are embroidered....
 I couldn't resist this one, because my husband loves giraffes....
 My favorite miniature....
 Don't these just take your breath away!!!!










I MIGHT have photographed a tenth or fifteenth of the quilts in the show!  And I haven't even posted all of those pictures here. I just can't tell you how wonderful it was to walk around that room and look at such works of art!  I'll have a few final photos and comments in a future post....Wish you could have joined me!

  2. Marie, These are incredible works of art. So intricate its hard to believe anyone could produce them!!! I loved the dog on the couch with the bunny slippers on. How much fun! Thank you for inviting me over to see these. I'm wondering if one of them is yours? It must have been a huge show if you only photographed a tenth or so of the entries. Wow....

  4. Marie, I sure had my favorites and I was guessing at what might be some of your favorites. So many to pick from, such talented ladies to produce such intricate work. The Mid-Atlantic is coming up here soon but I am not sure I will be attending. So glad you got to go to the one there.
