Adult Center - December 2008
For your viewing pleasure, this latest presentation of quilts has been hung by the Thumb Butte Quilters Guild. The theme for this display is “All That Glitters”, and we hope you enjoy these quilts whose patterns make your eyes wiggle and jiggle just a little bit. Every one of them has its own sparkle! Plus…many display a sense of ‘celebration’! As we come to the close of this year, celebrating is a very good thing, don't you think!?!!

The makers of the quilts now hanging in the atrium of the Prescott Community Center are as follows: (standing at the Reception Desk, looking South out the front door, beginning with the first small quilt in the southwest corner, and going around the room clockwise):

Chris Anders, quilt maker. (small quilt location--southwest corner) This quilt is named “Fractured Stars”--a playful quilt! Stars were made in a workshop taught by Nyla Paulsen and Sheila Smith. It was machine pieced and quilted by Chris in June 2005.

(Large Quilts on the West wall):

Susie Martin, quilt maker. “My Stars”. Friendship star blocks were presented to Susie in recognition of her two-year Presidency of the Friendship Quilt Guild in San Diego. Blocks are signed in this signature quilt.

Carol Miller, quilt maker. Many quilts were made in celebration of the new millennium. A fabric exchange with friends provided Carol with 2000 different fabrics! Quilt was completed in October 2000 in Columbus, Ohio.

Chris Anders, quilt maker. Half-square triangles are a favorite of quilters. Doesn’t this quilt look like a party is going on?!

Dotty Mercer, quilt maker. (small quilt location--northwest corner) “Sunshine and Shade”. A happy quilt completed by Dotty in July 2007.

Maria Thomas, quilt maker. (small quilt location--northeast corner) “Red Sky at Night”. This quilt is a Christmas gift which the recipient won’t get until January when this collection comes down! Machine pieced and quilted by Maria.
