Running Behind! Quilt Walk Statue is here!!!

I don't know how people keep up with blogs, facebook, and twitter. I can't do one little blog on time, let alone read any! Anyway two weeks ago was our sewing night and I have pictures to show you of that. Many talented ladies doing fun things!

Last week the Quilt Walk Statue was placed on it's base! Too exciting! I knew we would eventually get it done, but it is here now and it is spectcular! So many people to thank for such a treasure! It takes many hands to get something as wonderful as this done! I want to thank everyone...the ladies and men who come and support the Quilt Walk Festival, all the volunteers who have made the Quilt Walk a success, the people who donated money and time and chocolate items, the people who have worked tiredlessly to get our cement done for the park, Panguitch City, Garfield Co Commissioners, Stan Johnson (the sculptor), Zions Bank, Heritage Highway so many of you have added your touch to make this wonderful project a reality. We have truly been blessed with wonderful friends! We are looking at dedicating it on September 11th, 2010.

It is so amazing how this story has impacted people. Check out my friend Jan's blog and read the story. I was shocked as when friends told me that they had heard the Quilt Walk story on the Spoken Word on KSL on the 25th of July . It sent chills up my back. It was rebroadcast yesterday on KBYU and I was just amazed as I listened.
Look at the legacy those 7 men left!


  1. The statue is incredible so are your show and tell items. Good to see you catch up on the blog...

  2. I love the statue. That is such a fantastic story. Last weekend I had dinner with friends and I told them about the quiltwalkers. They were fascinated. I'm going to forward your link to them as well. Nice new blog, by the way! :)
