Springville Museum Quilt Show

There's still time to see the wonderful array of quilts at the Springville Museum of Art.  This is one of the best quilt shows I've seen.  There was one gallery after another of outstanding work, from traditional patterns and hand quilting to art quilts and machine thread painting, along with everything in-between.

Helen Butler won "Best of Show" with her stunning "Turkish Delight".  Photos do not do this quilt justice.  This one really has the "wow" factor....that was the word you heard from everyone who looked at it.






This quilt, by Marilyn Toone, won the "Visual Impact" award for Cinco de Mayo.  The color choices in the center of the quilt makes it sparkle, while the appliqued border contains riot of color.











Can you believe that this quilt began as one piece of hand dyed, batiked piece of fabric?  Anne Munoz captured a look into space through the Hubble Telescope in her fabric and quilting.  She won the "Artistic Impression" award for "The Perfect Storm.




Okay, just a few teaser photos to whet your appetite for more.  The show will continue through out the month of August, so you still have a couple of weeks to see it.
