If you have never been to a quilt show, you might surmise that it would be boring. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you enjoy looking at art work, you will enjoy a good quilt show. Think of the quilts as fabric art. Luckily we have a great local show put on annually by the Arizona Quilter’s Guild. This years show theme is Wish Upon a Star. There will be quilts made to theme but also many quilts following a theme of the creators choosing. Over 400 quilts will be on display.
This year there is a featured Arizona quilter – Sharon Schamber, who is nationally known. She won the 2007 $100,000 Quilting Challenge. (no that is not at typo it is $100,000!) She will have several quilts on display. I have been fortunate enough to see some of her quilts in the past and to hear her speak. They are incredible works of art.
If you are interested in purchasing quilts, there is a small quilt auction. The silent auction runs through noon on Saturday and the live auction takes place at 1:00pm Saturday. Several of the chapters of AQG usually are selling tickets for full size opportunity quilts as well. There will also be a vendor mall with fabric, patterns, and other quilting items for sale on both days.
The quilt pictured here is one that I made. It won’t be in the show. – Amy
