Artist Michelle Walton took a month to hand paint the quilt, but she designed it to incorporate all of the months.

The quilt illustrates the "Celebrate the Seasons" theme of the 19th annual convention of the Society of Decorative Painters. The quilt is valued at $3,500 and will be raffled at the society's convention scheduled for May 9-11 at the Salt Palace. Part of the proceeds will be donated to Primary Children's Medical Center and Shriners hospitals.More than 300 exhibitors will display trends in decorative painting. For information, call 268-2505.
