Sierra Vista Show

Here are some of the highlights of the wonderful quilt show in Sierra Vista last Saturday.  There were quite a number of really awesome quilts on display....

This one was done with machine embroidery in such a way that when you looked at it with 3-D glasses, it actually appeared 3-D!

Oops, Candy's out of focus!  She and my daughter Yvonne looking over the quilts at the show.

One of the older quilts on display.  A traditional design.

I wasn't crazy about the chrome yellow background on this vintage quilt. The color was sharp though ...a well-cared for heirloom for sure!

Baltimore Album.

This was Yvonne's favorite of all in the show.  She is getting the info off the card so she could vote for it as her Viewer's Choice favorite.

Another chrome yellow background to a vintage treasure.  This is one of my favorite motifs!

There was an entire section of vendors and I happened to sit down in a chair next to this wall-hanging while I was waiting for Candy & Yvonne to look around.  The lady there said her husband had done all the cross-stitch blocks on it (it has another row, this shows most of the squares), and it had taken him 12 years!  It was amazing!


  1. Wonderful show! I love that first quilt, and the one with the cactus and bird, and the embroidered one done by the lady's husband....would like to see it better. Wonderful quilts, one and all! I really need to get busy. I have not picked up any quilting for a month or more, except for making a few hexies. I seem to be in a slump. I have 4-5 UFO's laid out but can't seem to get started on finishing any of them.

  2. Oh, Marie...I loved seeing all of these. I loved the way the Dresdan plate was quilted. Not quite the normal cross-hatching. Loved the third one up from the bottom.

  3. There are some really pretty quilts at this show. I am so glad you, Candy and Yvonne got to attend. I have no idea which my favorite is... I do like Baltimore album quilts so I guess it would have to be that one.
