Adult Center - July 2013
“Yeah! Yeah! USA!” Here we are celebrating everything Summer in Everybody's Hometown of Prescott, Arizona. Nothing says “summer” like red, white, and blue quilts! We hope you will enjoy this quilt display and chant “Yeah! Yeah! USA!” along with us! Enjoy your summer!

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):

(small quilt location—southwest corner):

Maryann Conner, quilt maker. “Scrap Happy.” This quilt was begun in a TBQ workshop taught by Bonnie Hunter in January 2013 and was completed just in time for TBQ's June Quilt Show! Maryann loves a red, white, and blue quilt! Machine pieced and quilted by Maryann.

(Large Quilts on the West Wall):

Chris Anders, quilt maker. “Stars for America.” The star blocks were a block exchange project of a quilting mini-group known as “In Stitches”.

Tina McCowan, quilt maker. “Those were the Days.” These blocks are typically called the 'school house' block. Machine pieced and hand quilted by Tina in October 1998. Hand quilting is rare, but a delight to see now and then!

Barbara Merkel, quilt maker. “Sailing Flags.” This is a pattern by Evonne Cook of Clothesline Quilts. Barbara made this quilt for her husband's man cave, completing it in time for TBQ's June Quilt Show this year...and it hasn't made it to the couch yet!

(small quilt location—northwest corner):

Sandy Mitchell, quilt maker. “An American Dream”. This quilt was made as part of TBQ's American Spirit Challenge in 2005. There are 13 log cabin blocks representing the 13 colonies and 50 stars representing the United States.

(small quilt location—northeast corner):

Sue Weisshaupt, quilt maker. “Patriotic Twist.” She saw a similar quilt in her travels and went home to whip this up from memory! Machine pieced and quilted by Sue.

(Large Quilts on the East Wall):

Pat Armstrong, quilt maker. “Big Red”. In an attempt to use up whites and red fabrics in her “stash”, Pat found a picture on the internet and designed this quilt. The back is scrappy pieced, too. Machine quilted by Cindy Phare.

Fran Chadwick, quilt maker. “Eagle.” In 1789, George Washington became our Nation's first President and the American Eagle became our Country's official bird.

Arlene Franz, quilt maker. “Fun with Red”. Arlene took a class—The Cottage Quilt--at Quilt N Sew Connection, designed by “Swirly Girls” and taught by Joan Carrell.
