On our latest retirement jaunt to our friends in Cornville with The Cabin at Grace Hollow, we attended the Cootonwood, AZ quilters’ show on that Saturday. Held at a local school, the show was hung well, had a couple of cool, fairly local vendors, and had some stunning quilts. I realized, as I worried about giving recognition to each of the quilters, that I would have trouble writing down the names and matching them with the quilts. It FINALLY occurred to me to take a pic of the quilt, and then a pic of the name tag. Voila! Now I easily had both. So enjoy the quilt show.
By Barbara Benson, a closer look at the fabrics revealed a print of desert saguaro that added extra texture to the design.
My favorite, by Pam Pawlek. I loved the stained glass effect, and I kept wondering what she used for the “leading.”
Also by Pam Pawlek. I LOVED the design, as well as all the earth tones.
I am not a cat person, but these guys were really cute, and I thought the quilting was very well done. This is by Mona Crum.
Whole cloth quilt by Joyce Cook, with some really nice trapunto, as well a yummy quilting.
Lovely small quilt by Janet Kersh. Very interesting details.

Another quilt by Janet Berry, very bright and geometric.
Amazing thread work by Faye Celmer.
I’ve seen the pattern for this braid quilt before, but each time I see it done in reds and blacks, I am drawn to it. By Connie Myers.

Soothing blue and white by Charlene Dockray, again with very nice quilting.
A great pieced and applique’d quilt, very colorful, by Bev Lawrence.
Another quilt by Bev Lawrence. Interesting use of color.
I’ve seen this pattern the last couple of shows I have been to, and I really like it, especially done in some “quieter” colors. This is by Barbara Chronister.
Thank you Cottonwood quilters for an enjoyable two hours!
