Adirondack Museum seeks locally inspired quilts

BLUEMOUNTAINLAKE-The Adirondack Museum is on a search for Adirondack inspired quilts for their The Third Annual Great Adirondack Quilt Show, scheduled for Sept. 17 through Oct. 9.

The show will serve as the opening event of the museum's Fabric and Fiber Arts Festival and will complement the final season of the exhibit Common Threads: 150 Years of Adirondack Quilts and Comforters.

The show will separate quilts into two devisions. The first is historic quilts, which include works created before 1970. They can be of any theme or technique, but must have been made in the Adirondacks. The second devision will include Modern quilts 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. Quilts that include pine trees, wild geese or the a northern star are great examples, according to Susan Dineen of the Adirondack Museum.

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. 1. A statement by the maker is required to complete the application process.

For additional information or to receive an application, please contact Hallie Bond via email at hebond@adkmuseum.org or call 352-7311, ext. 105. Information can also be requested through the postal service at P.O. Box 99, Blue Mountain Lake, N.Y., 12812.
