July Fair at Wadley Farms Castle


The Castle at Wadley Farms was such a beautiful venue for our fair! 
Kim McCloskey and her committee did such a wonderful job of putting together
 such a delightful day for all to enjoy.




The food outside at the food trucks from Mama Z's and  La Table Crepes was great.



 Gloria Hartley and her crew from the Maple Mountain Quilters worked so hard on the garage sale and everyone took advantage of all the great bargains.



  The Utah Quilt Guild had a table with information about this year's Quilt Fest and tickets for the Opportunity Quilt.



                      The welcome table had all the information about classes and the door prizes.
            Classes were both upstairs and downstairs and very well attended with wonderful teachers.




                                                 The Quilt Show was the center of it all






                                                   The silent auction saw a lot of action.





Great vendors had their booths full of great buys and wonderful ideas down both sides of the hall.













The day ended with the announcement of Viewer's Choice in the quilt show going to Laurel Christensen for her Texas Longhorn Quilt "Abilene".

Show and Tell


First was Jill Cox. She loves novelty prints and her first quilt was a stack and whack quilt called “Light my Fire” with shirtless firemen! She said that she was keeping this one for herself J It was quilted by Rebecca Morgensen. Then she showed us two different I spy quilts. One was “I spy sparkle” and one was” I spy in 3-D”. Both were rotary cut and machine quilted. All were her own designs. 


Next was Brenda Sommers. She used a panel to make an “A is for Adorable Grandchildren” quilt with a soft navy minky back. 





Then Myrna Carnesecca showed three quilts. First was a 9-patch baby quilt with scalloped binding made from 30’’s fabrics. It was from a class taught by Ann Lewis. Next was “Posy Flower” done in 30’s fabrics from a pattern by 2 Peas in a Pod. Last she showed “Blue Ribbon” also by 2 Peas in a Pod made with bright fabrics in a throw size.
