Greetings From Arizona, A to Z Quilt

When Arizona turned 100 
in 2012 
many quilters throughout the State
paid tribute by creating
Centennial Quilts
Several of these quilts 
from the Prescott area
are currently on display
at the 
Sharlot Hall Museum
 Greetings From Arizona, A to Z
by Ann Novak
Chino Valley, AZ
 When Ann was a teenager in the 1950's, 
her family took a road trip
that included
following Route 66 through Arizona.
She wrote:
"I collected postcards along the way 
and my favorite cards featured
balloon letters filled with photo scenes."
 When it came time for Ann to show her love of Arizona
through a Centennial Quilt
she chose to combined personal photo's 
in a picture card format.
Have you collected postcards like these on trips?
I think it's interesting that the 
balloon letter format
 can still be found today
on State postcards.
Nice job Ann!
Viewing your quilt really took me on a trip down Memory Lane.

Such a wonderful quilt, and love the post card idea. I did buy postcards on several trips. What a great way to use the photos.
