Quilt Fest Baskets & Auction
The primary fund raiser for the Utah Quilt Guild is our annual Art Basket Silent Auction. The proceeds from this activity generally provide most of the funds in support of the Quilt Show.
Here are the basic guidelines: Donations can be quilting related items, fabrics, notions, household items…perhaps even a quilt! They should be in excellent condition and free of pet hair, dander, perfume, etc. The baskets should contain anything you would enjoy receiving if you “won” the basket. Music themed baskets are sure to be a success this year.
To aid in the display, items need to be in some type of container, such as a tin, a box, a basket, etc. Submissions need to be wrapped in clear cellophane. Embellishments such as bows are good, but please attach a list of the contents along with an approximate value & who is providing the donation, which could be either a group or an individual. Quilts do not need to be wrapped.
Bidding will end at 11:30 am on Saturday. Be sure to bid on your favorite!
We love to see the beautiful mini quilts everyone creates for Quilt Festival. Please contribute a small quilt for this excellent cause.
Mini Quilts need to be 20” per each side or smaller for our Mini Quilt fundraiser at Quilt Festival.
If you would like to turn in your mini quilt early, please ship it to Elise Larsen, 1149 S Eagle Nest Dr. Woodland Hills, UT 84653. Questions? Text: Elise at 801-369-1318.
At Quilt Fest, just choose mini quilts that you like, buy tickets for $1.00 per ticket or 6 for $5.00, and then place the tickets in the corresponding envelopes. Winning tickets will be drawn on the last day of quilt festival starting at 11:15 from each envelope and a lucky person will take that mini quilt home. Note: These quilts do not need to be pre-registered on the website to be displayed at Quilt Fest.
