ST. GEORGE — My Lazy Daisy, a directselling quilt and party planning company, and a group of the company’s consultants are working to make 750 quilts to go to the families who have been displaced as a result of the recent wildfires that are blazing over the Western United States, including in Utah and Colorado.
Dana Brooks, co-owner of My Lazy Daisy, said the idea to make the quilts started when one of the company’s consultants, Julie Anderson, was evacuated from her home in Fairview, where the 47,000-acre Wood Hollow fire burned about 50 structures and 14 primary residences, according to fire officials. Anderson’s home was spared, but the company still wanted to do something to help those who weren’t so fortunate.Download Full Article

FAIRVIEW, Sanpete County — From the ashes of a wildfire that burned more than 47,000 acres in central Utah was born an idea to help affected families rebuild: a quilt for every home lost, to bring warmth to those who knew only heat.
Nothing does a better job than a quilt of showing people they are cared for, Fairview resident Julie Anderson believes. After seeing a neighbor's house burn in the Wood Hollow Fire, she decided to make them a quilt to remind them that they were not alone, and that someone was rooting for them.View The Full Article
