This week I was able to go to the Holiday Quilt Show and Auction in Salt Lake City, Utah. (Not the auction part, just the quilt show.)
This is a lovely group that meets together once a month to make quilts by hand. Then every two years the quilts are auctioned off to benefit a worthy cause at the LDS Hospital. The hospital hosts this monthly meet up.
This year the cause is Breast Cancer Research.
All of the quilts are lovely! There are a couple that I specifically remember working on.
I have taken a few pictures of the ones I love the most. The descriptions follow each one.
The yo-yos were made by everyone. They were asked to make 4 yo-yos each time they came.
Bella Rosa was made by my quilt guild and donated to the hospital for finishing. Each one of us made a couple of squares.
I love the decorations they used. This banner is awesome! It has pictures of classic patterns, measuring tape, and straight pins.
These ones are fun!
This one has a lovely story to go with it. The main panel was originally a black and white outline. A lovely lady appliquéd all the fabric on to it. There is a small picture with the before and after to the side.
I love barn quilts! I want to learn how to make one!
This quilt has so many little features on it. For example, the sails on the boat are 3D.
This is another quilt that was done by members of my quilt guild. It is hand painted!
This quilt was made by board members from the hospital quilt group. It is like a hide and seek quilt with lots of hidden objects.
I love going to quilt shows and I love seeing the hard work that goes into each lovely piece. I hope that the auction goes well and lots of money is raised for this worthy cause.
Have fun quilting!
