Civil War Quilt Show

Come and participate in the only civil war era quilt show in the state!

The Heber Valley Civil War Quilt Show will be held on September 17th and 18th 2010 in the basement of AmBank at 620 West and 100 South in Heber City, Utah.  This quilt show is being held in conjunction with Heber Valley Civil War and Living History Weekend, a 1860s time period event hosted by the Utah Civil War Association and the Heber City Corporation.  Beautiful quilts were made by amazing women during a very turbulent time in our nation’s history.  Come see a reproduced sample of these civil war era quilts made by talented ladies throughout the state.

Only quilts that are faithful in color, material, pattern, and design to the time period will be allowed to enter this unique quilt show.  Pre-1870 reproduction fabrics and period specific patterns are a guide for quilts you may be considering to enter into the show.  Quilts made from kits are accepted as well as quilts made as replicas of original civil war era quilts.  Quilts made from your own imagination, as long as they are sensible to the era, will also be accepted.  Quilt types such as Dear Jane, utility quilts, samplers, medallion, and signature quilts are just a few of the possibilities.  Awards will be given.
Please see the event website at www.hebervalleycivilwarlivinghistory.com for rules and entry information.  The Heber Valley Civil War Quilt Show will be free to the public, along with a day full of civil war time period activities and demonstrations for the entire family.  Please direct your questions to Rachel Crane at (435) 654-7038 or cranes@thebluezone.net.
