Quilt Market Recap, Part 2

Salt Lake City is a beautiful city. The weather was gorgeous Saturday morning, and I decided to take a walk outside before heading to the convention center. Our hotel was a block away from Temple Square, one of Utah’s number one tourist attractions and world headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Salt Lake Temple

The temple itself is a magnificent building that took over 40 years to build. The grounds around the buildings were immaculate and the flowers were in full bloom.

Tulip garden

There were tulips in all colors and sizes as well as petunias, pansies and other colorful flowers.

And more tulips

I could have spent the day there admiring the beauty! But I headed inside to begin the work day! Here are some of the designers I visited with.
