Fiesta Days Quilt Show

This morning I got up at the crack of dawn to help hang a one day outdoor quilt show.

I am not really a morning person, but I think I would have enjoyed the sunrise more had I not gone to bed 5 hours before the alarm rang.

One of my guilds in in charge of this show, the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Quilt Show.  It is always on the 24th of July -- except when the 24th is a Sunday, and then it's on Monday.  In Utah, the 24th is Pioneer Day and when Spanish Fork has their annual city celebration.

This year there were 125 quilts in the show.  26 of them were mine.  A few of those were pieced by others.  All of them were made since the show last year.  The show is hung at a historic pioneer home on Main Street.

Here are a few pictures.  This is the front fence.  I have one quilt here with the yellow orange border.

I love this old barn!  The quilt on the far left is Moon Spots from Simpl y Charming Modern.

This was my favorite location.  I love hollyhocks!  Even when they aren't in bloom.  This is also from Simply Charming Modern.

This quilt isn't mine.  It was made by a friend of mine from my book Simply Charming Collection.  She has made 8 of my Charming Lonestar quilts -- one for each child!

These three quilts are mine.  One is a sneek peek that I get to share soon. 

I also have pictures of the brown bag challenge quilts!  Stay tuned. . . .
