I attended a local quilt show this month. I do not think they had their show last year but I did write on this particular guild’s show in 2019. It is the Mt. Taylor Quilt Guild quilt show located in Grants, New Mexico. There were so many beautiful and inspiring quilts! So let’s just get to presenting some amazing eye candy! The first up is Lynn Olinger’s Butterfly which I think is a really striking quilt!
Next is Nellie Kelsey’s Selvage Strips which I adore with its use of scraps.
This next one is super fun, especially when you note the title: Spiders. By Carol Saunders
I love the use of subtle use of batiks in Marjorie Polich’s 76 Clambones below.
Next we have another from Lynn Olinger titled Tennessee Whiskey.
I am kind of a sucker for earth tones, and earthy themed, quilts. The one below fits that bill for me in a table runner size. It is Donna McCausland’s My Christmas Leaves.
Another earthy one I was really drawn to is Laura Wilson’s Mid Century Modern. I love the touch of embroidery in there.
This next one, Vicki Johnson’s Lemon Halftones, I find really unique and fascinating as it is missing particular circles. It insists you look at it and think, which I love.
Another one I adore is another from Nellie Kelsey titled Wedding Ring. I adore its retro simplicity. It is all hand quilted and embroidered and I find it to be incredibly sweet.
Here is a super fun and bright one! Laura Herman’s Crazy Nine Patch..
Utha Russell’s Any Which Way is so fun and vibrant and full of movement.
This last one is my favorite. I was really drawn to the color choices and just how beautifully it flows using batiks that are earthy yet bright? Laura Wilson’s Batik Beauty.
There you have it! I think there was an incredibly inspiring variety of quilts and approaches to quilting at this little local quilt show. I hope you can find a local quilt show in your area!!
