Pioneer Days Quilt Show

Every July 24th the state of Utah celebrates the arrival of the Mormon Pioneers to the Salt Lake Valley.  There are parades, carnivals, fireworks, rodeos, and tons of food!  Our little local town of Spanish Fork goes all out for that week.  They call it Fiesta Days and we love being a part of it.  

One of my favorite parts of Fiesta Days is the Pioneer Days Quilt Show.  They host it at an old home on Main Street that has several old pioneer cabins and barns.  The quilts are made by local people and are displayed all over the grounds.  Each visitor is asked to pick their favorite quilt....and then a winner is chosen.  Here are just a few of the many quilts displayed this year...















My favorite quilt this year was the yo-yo quilt!  I loved the reproduction fabrics and those yo-yo flowers were amazing!!!  It inspired me.  I hope you enjoyed this little tour of the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Pioneer Quilt Show....and Happy Pioneer Day!!!
