2010 Temecula Outdoor Quilt Show - Part One

Saturday was the 12th Annual Temecula Outdoor Quilt Show.  Rain had threatened, in fact I heard thunder just before I headed out the door.  Luck was with the organizers, and it was a spectacular day, if hot and humid.

I got there early, I'm early for everything, and the quilts were still being hung.

Now, I have to confess what a dork I am.  This is the 3rd time I'm gone to this quilt show, and it first time I've paid attention to who made what.  Before I'd just shot photos, and I was happy with their beauty.  This time I actually talked (gushed), to some quilters, briefly, about their work.  So today's post is showing off four quilters and their quilts.  This is in the order I met them.

Cheri McDowell

Here is her quilt, Stepping Stones:

another is Batik Jungle:

Love One Another:

She didn't make this one, but it's very special to her:

and this is why:

Aren't quilters great.

Susan Niland

Her quilt, Baltimore Album Quilt My Way is spectacular. She started it in a class in January, 2009 and finished it in August 2010.  A real show stopper.

Lynn Beck

Lynn lives in AZ, but still visits our area.


Respite Leftovers:

Not Quite Traditional:

Summer Flowers:

and Leftovers:

Janet Keplar

If I were forced to choose a favorite, I think it would be this knockout, Snowberries:

How 'bout this Jocobean - Alphabet Soup?:

Pound Dogs:

And Let It Snow:

That's the end of my quilt show, today.  Most likely, I'll be sharing more quilt-y goodness tomorrow.  Now, I'm off to sew.


  1. I liked your quilt-y goodness. Thanks for sharing. I didn't get to make it to this show this year. But happy to know you made it.


  2. I have been waiting for you to show pics of the quilt show. I knew it was coming up because I look forward to this post every year. Thanks for letting us see the talented quilters. And the stories that come with each quilt is priceless. Makes me want to go to the basement and lock myself in with my quilting stuff.

  3. Loved this tour of your area quilt show, Jan. In KY quilting is an old art form as well as practicality. so interesting to see difference in designs and quilting styles.
