The Carbon County Chapter of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers delighted the Price City Council Wednesday evening, revealing their finished Centennial Quilt, which the group will raffle during the city’s celebration this year.
DUP members Helene Majors and Penny Boyak attended the council’s regular meeting, bringing the quilt which members had been working on since February. The pieced quilt boasts many designs evocative of Carbon County, even including a reproduction of the design that is painted on the wall behind the council members, and a list of those who have served as Price’s Mayor on a back corner. Boyak, who designed the intricate quit and did much of the work, quipped that since it was finished, her husband now “might get dinner.”
Even before the women spread out the quilt to reveal the completed project, Mayor Joe Piccolo suggested that he might purchase it from them outright, and the council was clearly not disappointed when they finally saw the finished project. Shown to the council, and then to the audience, the DUP members’ centennial contribution received a warm reception.
Majors and Boyak were pleased with the response, and thanked the council for the opportunity to show the quilt. “We’re having so much fun with this!” Majors said. The group plans to start selling raffle tickets for the quilt as soon as this week, and they hope to show it at many venues and events throughout the summer.
