St Marys Quilt Show 2017
This is the 3rd annual event St Mary’s Catholic church has held and next year’s dates are already scheduled as a 3 day event instead of 2. Visit their site to learn more about the show and see photos of the beautiful grounds, the vendors, the café, the outdoor pavilion. The painted church and the quilts makes for a lovely day trip. Check their website HERE.
It has been so exciting to see that a client’s quilt graced the altar again this year at the show! Kathy Yeldezian’s Sedona Star. Not only front and center, but another client’s quilt hung off the banisters center stage as you were leaving the church. Lou Ellen Hassold’s Paradise in Blooms. Both of those quilts were awarded Sponsor ribbons (businesses donate a certain amount of money to help fund expenses with the show then they get the privilege to pin a ribbon on any quilt of their choosing as their favorite for whatever reason in the show).
My Amish with a Twist 3 debuted at this show. Lou Ellen’s Ring Cycles that I quilted was also displayed at this show.
The weather was beautiful, my husband and I went together and of course ran into many quilting friends to wander the grounds with. It’s only 45 minutes away from the city from my house. I just finished 3 “show” quilts in a row, barely getting the last one off the frame in time to headed out to the show with quilt in hand to present to it’s owner that I was meeting there. That afternoon was the perfect fix for all the hours I have put in on those past 3 quilts!
