National Quilt Day(s) Fun

Davis North/Weber areas had a very busy and fun weekend to celebrate National Quilt Day!  The schedule of activities for the two day event was front and center as guests arrived.  Yes, if you click on the picture, you can read it and see that both days were the 21st.


Legacy Village in Layton, has a retirement village, assisted living and rehab units.  The first trunk show was a variety of quilts that belonged to some of the residents.  Sandra, from the Kalico Kut-ups chapter interviewed these residents and told the stories of the quilts.  It was very inspiring and fun to see how happy they were to be recognized.  Below are just a few of their quilts plus a crocheted bedspread.







Ten chapters participated in this event, so there was a lot of variety in the demos and items to purchase.  Lots of mini quilts and baskets for the silent auction as well.  There were 60 quilts on display and Pam White won first place for viewers choice!  All of the trunk shows were wonderful, too.  It is so interesting to see the different styles and how quilters evolve over time.  Three of the trunk shows were presented by UQG Board members.....Josephine Keasler, Kathy Porter, and Crystal North!  Lorie Bashein and Carol Johnson showed beautiful quilts as well.

The Friday trunk show of the Legacy residents was very fun and I loved hearing the history of the items. I love the Legacy Quilt show. It was also a surprise to realize I am in these pictures. Thanks for all your hard work. Julie
