Adult Center - September 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 “Our State Fair”, and we celebrate all things wonderful that can be seen at the Fair. Enjoy!!

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):

Carol Miller, quilt maker. (small quilt location--southwest corner) This quilt is named “Food Pyramid”. The pattern is “drunkard’s path”. How many fruits and vegetables can you see?!

(Large Quilts on the West wall):

Betty Foley, quilt maker. “Merry Go Round Farm” is Betty’s first quilt! Most quilters start with something smaller!

Lorraine Owen, quilt maker--“My Version of Painted Ponies”! Whew! Another first quilt.

Jan Kimbro, quilt maker. “This Old Barn” was an Arlene Stamper Block Swap begun at Quilt Camp in the Pines, July 2000. It was completed in March 2003. Classmates made the various barns and chickens blocks. Jan assembled and machine quilted it.

Sandy McGarry, quilt maker. (small quilt location--northwest corner) “Horses Galore” is composed of horse head fabric, collected over 20 years…waiting for just the right creative moment! Machine pieced and quilted by Sandy, our horse-woman extraordinaire!

Sue Weisshaupt, quilt maker. (small quilt location--northeast corner) The quilt is named “Can It”. The ‘canning jar’ quilt was machine pieced using shared blocks in Simi Valley, CA. Completed in Big Bear, CA, in 2000. Look at all the fun things Sue has canned!

(Large quilts on the East wall):

Chris Anders, quilt maker. “Sunrise on the Farm” is the result of a block swap of chicken blocks by the In Stitches mini-group. Quilt was assembled and machine quilted by Chris.

Sandy McGarry, quilt maker. This is “My Horse Quilt”. Sandy found this beloved and favorite horse fabric at Quilters Quarters in Cottonwood--it is the “featured” attraction in her “horse room“! Assembled by Sandy and machine quilted by Dawn Valanas-Moser.

Eve Pelletier, quilt owner. “The Chicken Quilt” is a Sampler quilt given to Eve for her contributions to the Congress Quilt Show. Blocks were constructed and the quilt was assembled by The Material Girls. Machine quilted by Maggie Keller. Quilt was a ribbon winner at the Yavapai County Fair and at the Arizona State Fair.

Sharon Heilman, quilt owner. (small quilt--southeast corner) This quilt is affectionately named “The Girls”. It was made for Sharon in recognition of her year as President of Mountain Top Quilters in 2005. She loves her Schnauzers!
