Garden of Quilts - 2021!!!

Garden of Quilts 2021 is a Go!!!   I am just thrilled to share that this amazing event is moving forward and I can't wait for September :)    This is just the thing to look forward to when we will all be getting back to "normal" ;)   And I would just love for you to join me and all of the amazing teachers, presenters, and most importantly, quilts!!!

The first Garden of Quilts was held in September 2019 to celebrate Riley Blake's 10th Anniversary!!!  The event was a huge hit.   And last year, even thought the classes, cancels, and trunk shows had to be cancelled due to Covid-19, the Garden was still filled with quilts for all to come and visit!!!  I had 5 quilts hanging in the Garden and I was so happy to be a part of it, even if I couldn't go and teach :)

But now, I am just thrilled that Garden of Quilts 2021 is moving forward and the Registration opens today!!!  It will once again be held at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi Utah  on September 15th - 18th, 2021.  There will be lots and lots of classes to choose from, as well as lectures, trunk shows, vendors, and of course, all of them amazing quilts in the outdoors!!!    I can't wait to see them all blowing in the breeze ;)  And you can be part of the Garden of Quilts show and submit a quilt for display . . . see all the details for submission here.

And I am super thrilled this year to not only be teaching classes but to be doing a Trunk Show as well!!!  I will be sharing my Charming Baby Quilts Trunk Show on Friday at 12:00 PM in the garden. All of the trunk shows for the day are included in your Admission ticket.   I am just so excited to share all of these quilts, including all of the remix's, in such a fun and amazing venue :)  

And right after the Trunk Show, I get to teach!!!   I will be teaching 3 classes at Garden of Quilts 2021!!!  Nordic Nights will be taught on Friday afternoon,  and then Desert Rose on Saturday Morning and finally,  Decades Past on Saturday afternoon.   I am so looking forward to all 3 classes and hope to see you in them ;)    They are going to be so much fun!!


And even if you are not from the Utah area, this event is so worth the trip!!!  It really is a rock star line up of teachers (which I am so honored to be a part of!!) as well as an incredible venue of over 55 gorgeous acres hosting an amazing line up of quilts all in the wild.   

You can see all of the details at the Main Garden of Quilts page .   I am so looking forward to this and hope to see you there!!!!  Won't it just be so great to get to sew together again :)  
Pin It!

  2. Hi Melissa! I am going try to get to go this year! I have heard so much about this quilt show! Do you know if they rent 'scooters'? I am having a complete knee replacement this month and don't know how well I will be walking in 5 months.
    Thank you - Bonny

    I would love to come to the Garden of Quilts. I can just imagine... absolutely beautiful Now what happens if it rains? Today I went to the Leesburg Virginia lawn and garden show, with many booths, certainly NOTHING like in years past, by any stretch of the imagination. I have been to the ones in the past held right in the city of Old Leesburg and it is a mob of people and music and fun. This year there were allotted times for groups, and far less booths, also it was held in the large park north of Leesburg and it was just okay. I enjoyed it because i had my grand girls with me.
    I would love to go to the garden of quilts
