Saguaro Sentinels Quilt

 Yesterday I attended the
Arizona Quilters Guild Show
at the Mesa Convention Center.
This is always such a great show
with over over
300+ quilts
and a nice selection of vendors.
I took a lot of pictures 
and will share with you some of 
my favorites.
 Saguaro Sentinels
by Patsy Kittredge
was a stunner
and represents our
Arizona desert so well.
Winner for Excellent Use of Color
and a 1st Place Ribbon for Theme

I painted the sky, 
pieced the background hills,
couched yarn for texture and 
used raw edge applique."
The best way to spend
National Quilting Day :)
