Adult Center - May 2014
“Celebrate! U.S.A.!” Here we are celebrating everything Summer in Everybody's Hometown during this Sesquicentennial celebration in Prescott, Arizona. Nothing says “summer” like Patriotic, and red, white, and blue quilts! We hope you will enjoy this quilt display. And...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):

Marti Harbour, quilt maker. “Dear Uncle Sam”. Marti found this pattern in a magazine, then added a touch of her own design. She pieced and quilted it herself.

(Large Quilts on the West Wall):

Barbara Merkel, quilt maker. “Sailing Flags”. This is a pattern by Evonne Cook of Clothesline Quilts. Barbara made this quilt for her husband, Rick. Isn't it great that they are sharing this quilt with us this summer!

Lorraine Owen, quilt maker. “Fun with Dick and Jane”. This quilt was designed by Lorraine, and pieced and machine quilted by Lorraine. What a quilter!

Carolyn Edwards, quilt owner. “Pauline 1914”. This quilt was rescued for $25.00. Her “guts” were spilling out. Carolyn did a lot of repair work, and now she's presentable. “Pauline 1914” is embroidered on one of the blocks. She's 100 years old!

(small quilt location—northwest corner):

Earlene Springs, quilt maker. “Sister's Choice”. This quilt was started in a TBQ Workshop with Quilt Educator, Bonnie Hunter. Machine quilted by Sandy Holderness.

(small quilt location—northeast corner):

Jane Holland and Paula Pilcher, quilt makers. “Glory, Glory, Hallelujah”. The quilt was made specifically for this patriotic display. The pattern was from a Better Homes and Gardens quilt book. Jane did all the hand appliqué and Paula did all the machine piecing. It was quilted by Cathy Arminio from Flagstaff.


(Large Quilts on the East Wall):

Carol Miller, quilt maker. “Candy Swirl”. The blocks were hand pieced on a summer vacation to Israel and Egypt in 2000. Machine quilted.
