Hummingbird Stitchers Quilt Show

A couple of weekends ago, I attended the Hummingbird Stitchers Quilt Show in Sierra Vista, Arizona hosted by the Hummingbird Quilt Guild.  It's always a fun and inspiring trip.  This year was wonderful, too.  Here are some photos that I took which just don't do justice to the marvelous handmade quilts.

This was called Fractal Spiral and it was made by Linda Erickson.  It won Best of Show.  Wonderful use of colors and fabrics.  It just invites you to stop and look at it.  Then look again . . .

This is one of my favorites.  It is titled Cornucopia and it was made by Norde Sebens.  Hand appliqued and hand quilted!!!

This was very popular!  It's a quilt made to reflect a map of Cochise County, Arizona, the county where the quilt show is held.  It was made in 1995 by members of the Cochise County Historical and Archealogical Society and the Sew Peaceful Guild.  It hung in the vintage and antique quilt section.  It won a Ranger's Choice Award at this year's show.  It's chosen by the Arizona Rangers, who provide nighttime security at the quilt show!  They are there to guard the quilts.  They ought to have a say about which quilts they like!

And I'll leave you today with this wonderful, delightful detail from another Norde Sebens quilt.
