Quilt by Evelyn Link for "100 Arizona Quilters" state centennial exhibition

The 100 quilters selected to be part of the Arizona Historical Society‘s state centennial exhibition started bringing their work to the Tucson branch this week. On September 9-10, AHS’s Tucson staff will be receiving selections from roughly 40 quilters. On September 15-16, the process will continue at the Tempe historical society branch, followed by a third group of intakes in Prescott, Arizona Sept. 23-24.

Daniel Buckley is videotaping the intake process and photographing each of the quilts, along with its maker (when available) for a series of video products associated with the February, 2012 show.

  1. Simply gorgeous!!! 🙂

  2. Hello Evelyn, from a friend a long time ago, (6th Grade).

    Your beautiful quilt is absolutely gorgeous, and I certainly appreciate and respect not only the beauty, but the accuracy of what it represents to all Arizonans. It has been over 59 years ago, and I hope to see you again, at the double nickel reunion.

    Keep up the great, outstanding work, and you should be listed in the Hall of Fame for Quilters. Call me.
