For a limited time…only.

No rides. No farm animals. No cotton candy—or food of any kind on the premises, thank you. But somehow still a fair none-the-less.

By now…you should know how we feel about fairs…any sort.

We lovvve them.

I couldn’t stop looking at this one. It’s my favorite in the whole building. It was sewn with gold thread and sparkled like there was dew on all the leaves. So beautiful.

This one, “A Very Hungry Caterpillar”  was the babies’ personal favorite. They tried to eat it.

I’m not kidding.

So we had no choice but to go down the street and find…

Fresh. Peach. Shakes.

Also for a limited time only.

It couldn’t be helped.

After all…it was a fair.

  1. You really should be giving the quilters credit for their work instead of posting people’s art without their permission.

  2. These are beautiful!!! It’s sooo fun to see all that talent in one place! What a great idea for the museum to hold an event like that! An exhibit like that is SURE to be popular around here! I bet all those quilters are happy that people are seeing and loving their work!

    Peach shakes. yUUUm!!!

  3. This was a charity event and we were encouraged to take pictures and share them to promote the fair, the museum the local cause, and quilting in general. As to “their permission,” the artists sign a submission form recognizing that their quilts will be displayed for “general publicity and educational purposes.”

    If a brochure had been available I would love to have posted the names as well. Sadly, there wasn’t one.

    I do appreciate the reminder to recognize the artisan along with the art.

  4. The Springville Quilt Show, one of my favorite past adventures. I used to go every fall to be inspired and to visit the local quilt shop down the street. Do you know when it ends? I’d planned to go again this year, since I’m back in the area, but it hasn’t made it anywhere near the top of the list yet. Maybe there’s still time.
    Thanks for sharing
