Third Annual Members Quilt Challenge

In early 2015 we sponsored the third annual Members Quilt Challenge.  All current Members were eligible.  The challenge is to design and make a quilted entry based on some aspect of an artifact quilt selected from the OSV collection.  For the 3rd annual challenge the selected quilt is a circa 1845 nine-patch variation pictured below.  All types of quilted entries are welcome – traditional, contemporary, miniatures, garments, or accessories – as long as they included SOME link to the specified quilt and include some of each of the five provided challenge fabrics. Click here for the full list of rules.

All of the challenge entries are on display in the OSV Visitor Center Folk Art Gallery from January 31 through March 1, 2015.  On February 14th and 15th, each visitor to Old Sturbridge Village had the opportunity to cast one vote for their favorite entry.   Winners were announced and prizes were awarded at the end of the day on February 15th.
