Tombstone Art Association Quilt Show

I’m trying to get this done, (and will) if Ray quits bugging me.

Today we stopped in Tombstone to see the Quilt Show on our way home from Bisbee ( the long way home :) ).  This show is every Feb. and runs through the month.   This is their  28th show and quilters from all around SE AZ. enter their quilts.  I’m not comfortable writing so here are a lot of photos of some of the beautiful quilts at the show.  Most of the pictures I took are of hand quilted quilts.  There were also many wonderful machine quilted quilts.

Well if you like quilts, you don’t mind all the pictures.

  I wish I had taken the time to write down all the names, but Ray ( with his feet hurting) was nice enough to go out of our way home just for me, so  I ooed an ahed  and took lots of photographs.Tombstone Raffle
