From its humble beginnings in 1983 as several women who valued the rich cultural heritage of quilt making organized the first Quilt Show, to today, the Holiday Quilt Show and Auction is one of the last remaining all-hand-quilted quilt shows in the United States.

Each year hundreds of volunteers give countless hours of their time, talents, and resources to create beautiful handmade quilts. Thanks to a generous community, more than $4.5 million has been raised through the Quilt Show in support of Intermountain Foundation work in helping to provide the highest quality healthcare to Salt Lake Valley and beyond. Funds have also been used in support of medical research and education, advancing the science of medicine.
