Annual Members' Quilt Challenge

All current members are eligible to participate in an annual Quilt Challenge. The 4th Annual Quilt Challenge in 2016 had eleven amazing entries. Participants were asked to design and create a quilted object using five selected fabrics from Marcus Fabrics’ Old Sturbridge Village Christmas Collection and to incorporate an aspect from a historic quilt from the Museum Collection. You can see the winners here. Stay tuned for information regarding the 5th Annual Members' Quilt Challenge later this year!
