I was a judge this year for the Springville Art Museum Quilt Show, and while I can’t include all the quilts that were hung, I thought I would post up a few that were my favorites or that caught my eye.
Details from quilt. She used the pattern from Piecemakers: “His Majesty – the Tree.”
Pizzazz! designed and quilted by Ruth Davis — an original pattern!
Never a Blue Heart
Made and quilted by Lisa Johnson
Sheryl Gillilan designed and quilted this quilt, titled, It’s All a Game!
The Boys on the Block
Designed, made and quilted by Marian Eason
Made by Patsy Wall; Quilted by Kim Peterson
Made by Katherine Porter; Quilted by Emmy Evans
At first glance, I thought the flowers were broderie perse, but it’s all appliqué!
Ann Larsen started Nature’s Chorus in 1999 and finished about 30 of the blocks. During the pandemic she finished it. Quilted by Shelly Dahl.
I loved the simplicity and elegance of this design, with outstanding quilting.
Pamela (a fellow judge) and Wendy (Chair of Quilt Committee) on the day the show opened. (Lisa’s quilt is in the background.)
Julie Saville first created the borders of her quilt Star Garden, then did the center. She also did the quilting.
I could have looked at this one for hours–sorry about the images. Photographing in high contrast light (like spotlights on quilts) often does funny things. It was stellar, though!
Florence Evans’ Bow Wow Chow Mein
Made by Evans; Quilted by Quilts on the Corner
Improv Curves, Made and Quilted by Marian Murdock
Effervescence • Made and Quilted by Sheryl D. Gillilan
I loved this quilt, with all its blues and aquas (my colors!). It is titled Straits of Mackinac and was made by Lani Brower (my second scribe) in a Bonnie Hunter class on Mackinac Island, Michigan. Peggy Cameron did the quilting.
Just a handful more quilts for this post.
Diversity – Unity – Harmony (Mobius Radial Quilt)
Made and Quilted by Luanne Olson
I hope you can see what a wide variety of quilts there are in this show!
Andrea Erekson made and quilted Happy Golden Days
Katherine Porter’s Fan Flower • Quilted by Virgina Gore
There were quite a few more quilts, but next year you’ll just have to go and see for yourself. Thank you, Springville Art Museum and the Utah Valley Quilt Guild!

Thanks for sharing these unique quilts, Elizabeth, as well as some of the stories behind them. I especially love that the quilt begun in 1999 is finished.
So many gorgeous quilts! It’s a thrill to see them in photos, but imagine it is nothing like seeing them in person.

That’s my kind of quilt show! A great blend of “oh my what amazing skills!” And “Ooooh I could do something like that!”
Thanks for sharing so many beautiful quilts. I’m often in awe of the skill and motivation that quilters display in their work. The tree quilt is especially nice.
Elizabeth – Thank You so much for sharing your experience and photos! These are stunning works of art. Inspiring and intimidating for a “intermediate” quilter like me. 💕
Look at that – one of your most recent quilts in the show! All very beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing.
So many wonderful quilts! Thanks for sharing!
So many different styles. Of course, Never a Blue Heart is one of my favorites. 🙂
