12th Annual Rim Country Quilt Roundup

Last Saturday three ladies from my church quilt group and I headed to Payson, Arizona for a quilt show. I took lots of pictures, but I can’t post them all, so I corralled a representative sample.

The first quilt I saw set the tone of the show for me. Look at this glowing beauty, Wilma Bling by Monika Hancock:
