A "Call for Quilts" from the Adirondack Museum

BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE - The Adirondack Museum is seeking quilts for "The Second Annual Great Adirondack Quilt Show" to be held from Sept. 14 to Oct. 17. The show will be part of the museum's Fabric and Fiber Arts Festival and will complement the exhibit "Common Threads: 150 Years of Adirondack Quilts and Comforters."

There will be two divisions - historic quilts, those made before 1970 and can be of any theme or technique, but must have been made in the Adirondacks and modern quilts, those made after 1970 and should have a visible connection to the Adirondack region.

An eligible quilt might depict an Adirondack scene in appliqu or be composed of pieced blocks chosen because the pattern is reminiscent of the region.

A "People's Choice" award will be presented to one quilt in each division.

Although the show will not be juried, applicants must complete a registration form prior to Sept. 11. For additional information or to receive an application, contact Hallie Bond at hbond@adkmuseum.org or 352-7311, ext. 105, or through the postal service at P.O. Box 99, Blue Mountain Lake, NY, 12812.
