UQG Opportunity Quilt

"Sew Lovely" is our theme for Quilt Fest this year and this quilt says it sew well.  The quilt top was made by Sharon Aposhian Wright, Barbara Walsh, Francine Barrett, Megan Legas, Helen Butler, Josephine Keasler, and Krisanne Watkins.  Everyone designed and stitched a section or round and then passed it to the next person.  The resulting quilt is much more than "sew lovely"....it is so-o-o exquisite!  The pictures don't begin to show the outstanding work put into this quilt.


Click on the photo to enlarge it in order to see those hand quilting stitches!  Yes, it is all done by hand by Sharon Aposhian Wright, Barbara Walsh, Francine Barrett, Megan Legas, Helen Butler, Cathy Payne, Leslie Randle and Kimberly Lohner.  The binding was done be Cody Mazuran and the finished size is 80"x 94".

You will probably recognize most of the names of these quilters as very talented, award winning Utah Quilters!  The quilt will be hanging at HMQS in the lobby, May 9-11, so stop by and take a good look at it.  Tickets will be available at $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.  The quilt will also be shown in different areas of the state, so check with your area rep for dates / meetings.
