I was so pleased to go to the Garden of Quilts at Thanksgiving Point’s Ashton Gardens in Lehi, Utah.
This is one of my favorite quilt shows to go to. Why? Because it combines two of my favorite things, quilts and gardens!
I love how each quilt that is made is different than any other. Even if it uses the same pattern and same materials, each quilt will have its own personality. Just like a flower. Not all red roses are the same!

Each quilt tells a story. There was a quilt that shared pictures from someone’s mother. Such a story of love. Another quilt was only made with fabric selvages. Think of all the different fabrics used and the many hours of collecting and sewing!
There are so many ways to make a quilt. I love how different shapes, colors, and threads are combined in each quilt. Just think of how many different ways you can make a quilt by just using squares!
I love the beauty and uniqueness of each quilt and the beauty of the environment they were displayed in.
Have fun quilting!
