American Fork Steel Days Quilt Show

34 comments
Most of the local towns around where I live have quilt shows during their celebration weeks in the summer time. A couple towns over from me they are having their yearly summer celebration. Cathie reminded me that the quilt show in American Fork was today and tomorrow. Thanks Cathie! When I visited the show today Cathie was there manning the sign-in table. When I got to the quilt show location I realized I had forgotten my camera! But I sent my daughter down later to take a few snap shots. She probably didn't take pictures of the ones I would have but you'll get the idea. And check out Cathie's blog this weekend for pictures. I made her promise she'd put them up on her blog.

As we were walking through the quilts Laurie said to me "Mom, look those are your quilts!" Well not mine, but my patterns. It was really exciting to see my ideas and patterns worked up by a good quilter and put in the show. It was so fun! The quilter credited me on in her write-up about her entries.
There really were a lot of very nice quilts. And this is just sampling.






I was really glad she took a picture of this quilt. It really was my favorite, of course. Its kind of like my Parchessi quilt.
Feedsacks and vintage fabric. So so cute.

What fun to see your own patterns on display. The whole show looks like a fabulous time.

Catherine said...

Wow -- thank you for sharing these! That last quilt is incredible. I absolutely love it -- and that will have me scurrying to the quilt books to see if I can find the pattern! That would be fun to put together.

Erin said...

I thought the quilts were yours too. The lady who did them did a great job! How are you? I've been a little absent in my blogging and reading lately. I've been really busy - but it's fun to catch up with you! :) Have a great weekend!

Hi Nanette, you lucky dog, getting to go to all those quilt shows. Are you coming to Nashville for the AQS show in August at Opryland Hotel? We could have a great time!
luv, Nerm

I'm going tomorrow and I can't wait. I didn't know you could bring a camera so thanks for the reminder. Last year there was one I loved and I came home and made on on EQ5 that was similar so I'd remember it. Still haven't done it though! I love that last quilt. Can't wait to see it in person!

May Britt said...

The last photo is also my favorite. It's beautiful. I wonder if I can but together fabrics like that to make a "similar" quilt.

Joanna said...

Hi Nanette! Carmen finally got high speed internet so I will be a little more present online now :) So you got to our show I see! Did you see my quilt?! The red and blue one? I didn't get it finished in time to be judged - doing binding at 4am wasn't as productive as I had hoped, so it is for exhibition only lol! I will have a good look around tomorrow and take some pics for my blog. I did see the quilts made from your patterns on the hanging day and said hey those are Nanette's patterns!!! Isn't this a small world when you're a quilter? :)

eileen said...

I wonder why that one only got a purple ribbon for "participant". I would have given it a blue on for sure!
I love it when you show pics from quilt shows.. your favorites are always my favorites too. :-D

Darlene said...

Wow, so many beauties! And, to see some of yours - bet that put a smile on your heart. :-)

amy said...

That last one is my favorite! I've vowed that I will make one...some day. I just love it, don't you? Very neat to see "your quilts" in the show!

Stephanie said...

Thanks for sharing. Oh what a good feeling to see your very own patterns!

Jo-Anne said...

I just look at these quilts and wonder....how do people make these??? They are so beautiful!
This post was a lot of fun. Thanks Nanette!

Your American Fork said...

My favorite was the monster quilt.

Glenna at Hollyhock Quilts said...

I want to come live with you! You get to do so many fun quilty things! :-) Thanks for sharing---

CJ said...

Ohhhh, thanks for sharing the pictures! I just LOVE to see what others are achieving. It must feel pretty good to see your own designs done by others. I went to a quilt show today! I will blog about it and post pictures later on tonight. Dh needs to take the pictures off of the camera for me. :D

Des said...

I love, love the last quilt. Is there a picture of your parchessi quilt on your blog?? I'd love to see it. Are you familiar with that pattern at all?? Oh, I love it! And I love your quilt shows! Thanks!

Lisa said...

These are all stunning patterns and quilts. Love all the great colors and fabric combinations.

I love to see quilts like this but I don't get to go to as many show as I would like.

Great photos!

Stacy A. said...

I am with you on the 30's parcheesi quilt. I cant believe that is all applique'. it is stunning. I also like the green and red Christmas star quilt. The unique mix of colors bring a welcome change to a season if standard colors and patterns. Hope all is well, Talk soon. Love Stacy

Jacquie said...

I love that last quilt too. I wonder what pattern it is? The fabrics are so great too!

Nadine said...

You patterns are wonderful, and what fun for you to discover them, while visiting the show :>)

That last "Joseph's Coat" quilt is my favourite, as well. Sooo beautiful, I tried to make it some time ago, but abandonned : too many curves for me ! Maybe I'll try again, "cheating" a bit, by fusing all petals, HeeHee...... (or is there another way ???).

Have a wonderful Sunday !

XOXOXOXOXOXO

I just stumbled upon your blog via brown dirt cottage.I love your blog and have added you to my blog list.

Kristi said...

What beautiful pictures! Seeing so many pretty quilts always inspires me to do more!!

Happy Zombie said...

How COOOOOOOOOOOOOL to see your patterns not only in a show... but with ribbons too!

Another great show and tell Nanette. Thank you for doing that! The bottom pic is my fave, and I can't get over what great condition those feedsacks are in.

Happy Zombie said...

Just looked at the big photo of "your" quilts. Darn... those are "participant" ribbons! They SHOULD be WINNING ribbons!

Simply This That and the Other... said...

I'm really liking the red and green with stars. Too cute!

Thimbleanna said...

Great pics Nanette -- thanks for sharing them. You're so lucky to live where there is so much quilt inspiration!

www.potsandpins.com said...

Hi! Is the quilt that you said was your favorite, the one like your parchisi quilt, applique? Or is it pieced? I can't tell from the picture but I love it! Thanks for the virtual quilt show - it was great! Nanette

Red Geranium Cottage said...

I love the star quilt and that parchesi one. Pretty exciting to see your patterns huh?

quiltingnana said...

thank you for sharing. you were so lucky to see them in person!

Cathie in UT said...

Hi Nanette and thanks for the plug for our show...
The reason the last quilt didn't get a placement ribbon is that the quilter requested exhibit only!
We had a few like that.
Also in our show if a quilter wins more than one ribbon in a catagory they don't get both places...being a community bases show not a professional show we like to spread the awards around.
Bye the way love all of your patterns but am looking forward to the "scottie" pattern one day LOL

Lily Boot said...

Oh Nanette - how lovely to have your designs represented at the quilt show! I feel honoured knowing such a talent! :-)

Nan said...

What wonderful inspiration, and how exciting to see your patterns created by someone else!

Karen Dianne Lee said...

Oh that last quilt there really lights me up!
