Tucson Quilters Guild Show – my art and applique favourites
QUILT FIESTA TUCSON ARIZONA
The quilts !
Where to start ?
The welcoming white glove ladies were there to inform and help us.
This quilt featured a great use of African fabric scraps .
President Challenge quilts : WHAT FUN IS ORANGE ?
What makes you happy using the colour orange?
This one made me happy!
As did this wearable, with my favourite- yoyos!
A great painted art quilt caught my eye.
Angel Paints or any Jacquard brand would work well.
Lovely embellishment detail that I can see Treenway silk ribbon .
The show stopper art quilt for me was this one.
The embellishment was intense and superb.
Of course my funny bone always loves Dia De Los Muertos
They remind me of the sugar skulls I made with my art students.
Nor can I resist cowboy boots. ( I know , not applique)
Wait till you see the trunk show in our booth at CQA in Calgary,
This was a stunning applique quilt.
The Garden Club
There were several quilts in the show with a similar finish.
This finishing technique was credited to Sharon Schamber
check out her free stuff
This was another lovely applique quilt,
obviously reminding me of Victoria.
Great use of batiks.
Lovely embellishment with beads
One last lovely favourite.
I can hardly wait to take some of Satin Moon’s
fabulous selection of applique classes this spring!
I’ll show you my favourtie pieced work from the show next week!
Time for more great Mexican food.
Gordon and Candy ( visiting from Boston)
Awww, I’ve been waiting all year
