One Week Later

Wow I'ts been a week since the Panguitch Quilt Walk and I am still tired. I forgot to tell you one of my good friends Jan
Won a Bernina Activa 220 from Daves Bernina in Provo and St George! We were all so excited for her. Now if I can only talk her into letting me try it out and make sure it is running good for her. I figure that should take about 6 months...

I promised I would show you pictures of my class, the New Orleans Puzzle. There were 21 ladies and they all got them finished. Too Much fun!

We have already started planning next years festival. Too many fun things to think about!

Hopefully in the next few weeks our Quilt Walk Statue will be coming. I'll keep you posted. Have a great week! Claudia

Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival

The Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival is over for another year. I am glad in some ways and sad in others. It is a huge job getting ready for it, but I have the greatest volunteers to help me that it is really fun. This year it started with the Chocolate Festival on Wednesday night. What could be better than quilting and chocolate. People donated all sorts of chocolate items and wonderful things for a silent auction. We had entertanment, fun and lots of chocolate. All the money raised from this event goes to our Quilt Walk Park.

Thursday starts classes. We had 43 classes over the 3 days. It was really fun. We had free trunk shows everyday with lots of door prizes. There are so many generous people in the quilting community. We also have a historic home tour, dinner theater, heritage fair.. something for everyone.

We ask the ladies to bring pillow cases and we donated 41 pillowcases to the Garfield Memorial Hospital. They were so fun and the hospital was glad to recieve the.

We had lots of vendors, hung beautiful quilts and had great classes. What could be better? You come to Panguitch, which is 22 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park, 1 hour from Zions National Park and 2 1/2 hrs from the Grand Canyon. You can bring your family and send them off to see the country and you can come and play with us. Mark it on your calendar for next year. It's always the 2nd weekend in June. Our website is
Tommorrow I will show you more pictures and the class I taught. Way too much fun!

Whew the month of May just flew by and I don't even know where it went. Yes I did spend alot of time in SLC taking care of my Dad while he was sick, and the rest of the time I was either at work or getting ready for the Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival. I did get my Quilt Walk quilt finished and begged my friend Shari. She is awesome! So artisitic and creative! Love everything she does!
When she quilted my quilt it had only on quilt on it, and then when I got it back I appliqued the paper-pieced log cabin quilt on to it, rolling back the corner. too fun.

We have lots of pictures and information on the Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival, but I am going to post that tommorrow as I am so very tired tonight. Check out my friends blogs for just a taste of how fun the Quilt Walk was. Nedra, Johna Lee. and Jan. I'll post again tommorrow!
