Winterfest 2013

Each of the past three years I've attended a great retreat, called Winterfest, at the end of January. It's at a great winter lodge up in the mountains east of Salt Lake called Daniel's Summit.  Check out my cozy room from a past Winterfest.

While attending Winterfest I've been able to take classes from well-known teachers such as Kim Diehl, Carrie Nelson, and Joanna Figueroa. I'll be able to take classes from Paula Barnes at the next Winterfest. Her company is now called Red Crinoline Quilts (although it used to be Bonnie Blue Quilts).  You're probably familiar with her lovely traditional Civil War-style quilts.

I'm privileged to also be teaching at 2013 Winterfest. I will be teaching a quilt called "Days of '47", based on the traditional (but not well known) Salt Lake City block. 

I have made three versions of this quilt, two of which are shown on the Winterfest website.

This version uses scraps.
This version (with a different border option) uses fabrics from the Circa 1934 fabric line by Cosmo Cricket for Moda.
Any Utah gals out there planning to go to Winterfest? It's a fun getaway in the middle of winter!

Oh how fun! I wish I was going to Winterfest. I've always wanted to go, and someday it will be a reality.
Your quilt is beautiful that you are teaching. I hope it all goes well.

Take Care.
