Springville Quilt Show, part 2

There was plenty to interest and intrigue me in this year's show.  I loved this one, 'Waterfall' by Kirsten Barnhill.  She won an award of excellence for fiber art.  Whatever she did, it is gorgeous.

Kathy Ann Porter's piece just goes to show that you never know what might come out of a doodle.  This is 'Tree of Life Doodle.'  She won an award of excellence for embellishment with another quilt that I did not get a picture of.

Ashley Lehmann won an award of excellence for 'out of the box innovation' with this quilt, titled 'Scattered.'  It uses silk ties for most of the fabric.

These last two were smaller quilts that nevertheless packed a punch.  The first one is 'Autumn's Glory' by Lisa  J. Tucker.

The second one is 'Rooster' by Bonnie A. Wilkins.  I think she really captured his attitude!

I will probably go back, and spend more time looking at all the quilts.  I'm just happy that there seem to be more non-traditional artists showing here.  I noticed that two live in Utah county.  I would love to connect with other artists living closer to me!

Hi, Beverly. Came over from Nellie's blog to enjoy yours. Amazing quilts at the Springville Quilt Show, but the Waterfall quilt would be my favorite--breath-taking. Also enjoyed seeing your dyeing projects. You've made some luscious fabrics.
best from Tunisia,
