Springville Trunk Show

The Springville Museum of Art has hosted a Utah quilt show for 42 years now.  The show is always filled with beautiful pieces.  My friend, Anne Munoz, won a ribbon for her beautiful piece.
 This is Anne's other entry into the show.
 I love this quilt made by Ruth Ewers.  Ruth is a wonderful quilter and always so generous with her knowledge.  She has taught me a lot.

 Nan Sturgell's beautiful quilt took a ribbon as well.  Nan's quilting is always perfect in my eyes, and obviously the judges agree!
My friend, Sylvia Lewis, pictured here with her two quilts, has been a wonderful mentor for me.  She has pushed me to do things I wouldn't have thought about doing otherwise.
This is my Moonlight piece made from Gelli® printed pieces of fabric.
I was invited to present a trunk show at the museum this year.
The crowds are always large.   They had to bring in a few more rows of chairs before we got started.
My trunk show is always about my journey from traditional quilting to art quilting.
I've given away most of my bed quilts, I don't even have one on my own bed.  Something I will have to take care of someday.  This little wall handing was made for my oldest daughter and has a coordinating bedspread. It is machine pieced but hand quilted with very large stitches.
 I have a number of UFO's in my collection as once I've learned a technique I often get bored and need to move on to something else.  This quilt was from a block of the month club and the theme was The Underground Railroad quilts.
 I showed many other quilts but only have photos of a few.
This piece was created for an exhibit that was about The End of the World.  It is an ice dyed piece of fabric that I quilted.  I felt that it represented my view of the world in chaos at the end of the world and then the Savior's light saving us all in the end.

As soon as I finished my presentation I drove off to my daughter's closing night in Annie Get Your Gun, followed by the family leaving the next morning to Cedar City, a 3 1/2 hour drive away.  My husband had a meeting there and it was a great excuse to complete some errands at my daughter's new college as well as see a Shakespeare play and Broadway musical!
I'm exhausted!  But there is still much to do!
