Springville Art Museum Quilt Show

A couple weeks ago I went to a quilt show at our local art musuem.  It is always a great show.  I think they took it down today.  To tell the truth, I almost forgot to post these pictures.  It seems like forever ago when I went.  I didn't get to spend as much time this year as I would have liked.

This quilt won a contest in McCall's Quilting.  I loved it then, so it was nice to see it up close!


This one was interesting because it was of a picture transferred to fabric.  The flowers in the front are appliqued.  There may be matallic thread in the water.  I remember it shimmering.  I loved how seamlessly the quilter moved from fabric to the picture and back.


I loved the frame on this quilt.  It actually looks like a picture frame.  The sliver of purple is perfect!


A friend of mine made this quilt.  I loved the roses in the border!


This was a modern sampler quilt.  The blocks were 8" I think.  It was in a hall, so it was extra tough to get a good picture. 


I loved the bold color on this quilt.  I never would have thought to use bright pink for hair, but it works perfectly here!  AND if I had that pink and green leaf fabric in my stash, ladies skirt wouldn't have been my 10th choice for what to do with it, but isn't it striking?!?


This is an example of the whimsy we get at the show.  It made me laugh.  It says "Good for you."


My favorite thing about the art mueum is this kinetic sculpture.  It has water running through it, and I never get tired of looking at it!

Love those quilts. I'd love to know the name of the pattern of the roses quilt. I tried to enlarge your photo to read the information on the side tag. Any chance you can read it to see if she gives the name of the pattern.

That first quilt is so neat. I have really been wanting to do a cardinal something in honor of my grandpa. Wish I had done it serveral years ago, but didn't think about it till recently.
