47th Annual Utah Quilt Show

at Springville Museum of Art

July 17 - Sept 28, 2021 

2020 Challenge announced at the January's meeting.

"Scrappy Stash Quilt"


The challenge this year is to make a quilt entirely from scraps (except the batting may be purchased). Everything else must come from your stash, including the backing!

(You can make a scrappy back or trade fabrics with a friend.)

Several quilts and ideas for scrap quilts were shown at the January 15 guild meeting. Challenge quilts will be displayed at the November 2020 meeting.

Words of Wisdom


My favorite quote from Brenda Sommers is: If you are a new quilter, or a quilter with shaky confidence – keep quilting!!!! You will get better, I am a much better quilter than when I started ...” Isn’t this where we all are? Loving what we do and getting better and better at it each day.
