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.
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.
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!
