Several quilters from Prescott, Prescott Valley and Jerome are displaying their quilts Friday and Saturday at the Arizona Quilters Guild "Spring Fiesta" 2000 at ASU West, 4701 W. Thunderbird Road in Phoenix.
An appliqued and hand-quilted "butterfly" pattern quilt by Julianne Dodds of the Mountain Top Quilters, on display at the Spring Fiesta, consists of about 50 colorful butterflies.
Carol Hood, of Prescott, used red and blue embroidery work to create a quilt of famous women's faces.
"Women Who Dared to Care" uses mixed techniques and a quilted floral border.
One of three quilts on display by Leigh Hay-Martin of Jerome is "Lost Perdidios Del Cielo – The Lost Ones of the Heaven," a pictorial wall quilt made for the 2001 Sedona Artist Invitational.
