Visitors and More Quilt Show Photos

Tuesday morning we enjoyed a great yoga class and “we” does not mean the cowboy attended! SmileRight at noon our friends rolled in the driveway.  John and Peg lived in Montana and it only took them one winter season of living in Arizona to decide it was the place to be.  They recently sold their Montana home and became full time residents of Arizona.  We had so much fun catching up with their lives and hearing about our friends back home.  I served an outstanding (even if I do say so myself, they said the same!) lunch—bourbon marinated pork tenderloin, roasted potatoes, salad with poppy seed dressing and another of those lemon meringue pies for dessert—outstanding!

Today the cowboy and I made a run to Surprise—Costco, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn’s.  I am making curtains for the big window we installed—it gets lots of early morning sun and Michael needed painting supplies.  We left Emmi in the care of Larry and Geri—her home away from home!

Lots of planning going on around here—ATV rides here and there—Friday is the day for the first one.

Here are some more quilt show photos--IMG_4365It is hard to see in this photo but the vendor looked as if she had scissors coming out both sides of her head—she was a cheerful soul!



The following quilt was named, “Frame of Mind.”  It is ONE small quilt—if you stood straight in front of the quilt you saw an image of Oprah Winfrey.  If you stood to the left you saw an image of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.  And, standing to the right of the piece you saw an image of Mother Teresa.

IMG_4400Look closely at the quilting—in the two smaller photos below I changed the camera settings in order to highlight the quilting—stunning!


IMG_4405Titled “Me and My Shadow” and again the quilting was spectacular!


IMG_4409And one last quilt photo—a beautiful landscape quilt—that is all pieces of fabric, not painted.



  1. Sometimes I just don't understand judge choices. The three faces is amazing!

  2. I guess after seeing those beautiful quilts I have to refer to myself as a "piecer" not a quilter. geez, amazing. Still can't figure out how they did that 3 D thing.

  3. Unbelievable!! I would be mentally exhausted if I put one of these quilts together. Squares would work for me. Thanks for sharing these photos.

  4. Thanks for these! I'm so amazed at the beauty and depth of each, whether they were winners or not.

  5. The lunch sounds delicious! Quilts are such amazing works of art. Not sure what the criteria is, but that 3D quilt is a masterpiece. Love the owl quilting too.
