St Marys Quilt Show 2017

This is the 3rd annual event St Mary's Catholic church has held and next year's dates are already scheduled as a 3 day event instead of 2.   Visit their site to learn more about the show and see photos of the beautiful grounds, the vendors, the café, the outdoor pavilion.   The painted church and the quilts makes for a lovely day trip.  Check their website HERE.

It has been so exciting to see that a client's quilt graced the altar again this year at the show!  Kathy Yeldezian's Sedona Star.    Not only front and center, but another client's quilt hung off the banisters center stage as you were leaving the church.  Lou Ellen Hassold's Paradise in Blooms.  Both of those quilts were awarded Sponsor ribbons (businesses donate a certain amount of money to help fund expenses with the show then they get the privilege to pin a ribbon on any quilt of their choosing as their favorite for whatever reason in the show). 

My Amish with a Twist 3 debuted at this show.   Lou …

My Prismatic Star One Stitch Closer

My schedule has been so hectic with so little personal time for even household stuff, much less my own projects.   I just added them up, I've quilted 12 charity quilts so far this year, with 2 more on hand to be quilted in April.  One was a queen size lovely quilt that I also donated the batting for that is going to a new local women's shelter.  Another is this quilt that I made entirely to donate for my son to use for fund raising for myeloma. I needed a quick project, I asked Denise Green to pull fabrics for me.  She sent me a box of fabrics, a color coded worksheet with the fabrics glued in.   I was ready to get to work on this one!   We love Judy quilt patterns!

This is Prismatic Star.   I also quilted it with a digitized custom set designed just for this pattern.  Both Judy Niemeyer - Quiltworx patterns.   I was torn, it's such a fun layout for custom quilting  - hand guided.  But it also offered the perfect opportunity to experiment with the digitized sets on  my own…
