Fiesta Days Quilt Show
Another Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Quilt show has come and gone. It is always held at the old Jones home on main street located next to the city park. There were lots of great quilts again this year. They have them hanging from every where.Here are few of my entries. They should all look a bit familiar to you as I have shared them on my blog in earlier years. Do you remember any of them? The first one is Button Up Buttercup.
Second one, a baby Twister.
Third and fourth, Skip Around the Block and my scrappy Twister.
When I got there to pick up my quilts after the show. They informed me that Button Up Buttercup had recieved third place for People's Choice. What a nice surprise.
I'll keep pieceing to enter some in next years. Me and sewing, what a great relationship we have together!
My hands are always busy, this has led to many crafty endevers, interior design, paper crafting, or sewing, but my favorite obsession is quilting and making bags. You can just call me an "Old Bag"! My husband, Stuart and I are empty nesters who like to travel in our 5th wheel trailer and spoil our three kids, two son-in-laws, one daughter-in-law and five darling grandkids. (if there's any money leftover from buying fabric!)
I work at Corn Wagon Quilts in Springville, Utah. The perfect job for me. I teach quilt and bag classes for the Corn Wagon and Dave's Bernina in Provo and St. George, Utah. It's a good thing we don't have to live off what money I make, 'cause you know it has to buy fabric! Glad you stopped by, pull up a chair, a diet coke, chocolate and lets get accquainted.
"The desire tocreate is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish tocreate something that did not exist before .... creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty ..."

This is my husband Stuart. This is who I share my nest with. He likes the outdoors, hunting, guns, and ME! He is a wonderful cook (am I lucky or what?) He is a fun, kind and loving father and grandpa. I'm so blessed to have in my life.
