Pioneer Day and A Quilt Show

July 24 in Utah is a state holiday to remember the first Mormon Pioneers who arrived in the Salt Lake Valley and thus began the settlement of Utah. Families often get together in their backyards to cookout and remember their own ansestors be they pioneers or not.
I was just back from my trip to NC and it was the first time I visited with family.

I thought I might share a few pictures from the quilt show at the Springville Museum of Art. This is an annual show and considered one of the "best" to exhibit your quilts in.
These are just a few that caught my eye for various reasons.
