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):

Kathy Beeson, quilt maker. “Pink Bouquet.” This quilt is a new one, finished up in time to hang in TBQ's Quilt Show in June. The yellow flowers are a fun fabric folding technique. Machine pieced and quilted by Kathy.

(Large Quilts on the West Wall):

Sue Weisshaupt, quilt owner. “Antique Applique Tulip.” This family treasure is finely hand quilted. While the quilt appears to be blocks, there are no visible seams for blocks. The applique tulips are appliqued by hand, but is it a whole cloth background?

Marti Harbour, quilt maker. “The Gift Box.” This was a kit offered by Nancy Rankin. The quilt was machine pieced by Marti and machine quilted by Sandy Holderness.

Sue Weisshaupt, quilt owner. “Broken Star.” Here's another breathtaking family quilt. It appears to be a “kit quilt”, probably produced in the 30's when kits were popular. Pieced by machine and hand quilted with the tiniest of stitches. The edging is called “prairie points”.

(small quilt location—northwest corner):

Betty Foley, quilt maker. “Pretty in Pink.” With her toenails painted for the dance contest, Reva Rhino is on her way to the Cotton Candy Pageant. Don't you love Betty's sense of humor! Pieced, appliqued, and quilted by machine by Betty.

(small quilt location—northeast corner):

Carolyn Edwards, quilt maker. “Healing Hearts.” Blocks were given to Carolyn as therapy to help her along her breast cancer journey. Pieced by Carolyn, machine quilted by Brenda Scott.

(Large Quilts on the East Wall):

Carolyn Edwards, quilt maker. “Pink Amish Baskets.” Blocks were made by friends. This is a reproduction of an Amish quilt made in 1908. Hand quilted by The Church Ladies in 2003.

Carol Stewart, quilt maker. “Rose Sampler.” Blocks machine pieced by Carol. Machine quilted by Mary Wilson.

Tina McCowan, quilt owner. “Contained Crazy Quilt.” Hand pieced and hand quilted in the 1940's while nurse Anna Mae Johnson Barbee (Tom McCowan's maternal grandmother and a descendent of President Andrew Johnson) tended to her terminally ill patients.

(small quilt location—southeast corner):

Carol Stewart, quilt maker. “My Little Princess.” Won't Carol's niece love getting this PINK beauty for Christmas!
