34th annual quilt exhibition awards announced by Billings Farm & Museum 

Salmo at Sea

WOODSTOCK— Billings Farm & Museum announced the Juror’s Choice Awards and the Staff Choice Award for the 34th Annual Quilt Exhibition at the opening reception for the exhibition on Friday, July 17.

The Quilt Exhibition is a juried show, with each of the exhibition’s three jurors selecting a quilt they thought most deserving of recognition. Judi Simon-Bouton of White River Junction was recognized for her quilt, “Square in a Square” by juror Colleen O’Neil; “Edgar,” made by Linda Diak of Chester, was selected by juror Nola Forbes; Susan Damone Balch of Reading, was selected by juror Marti DelNevo for her quilt “Salmo at Sea.” The Billings Farm & Museum Staff Choice was awarded to Josette M. Jones of Windsor, for her quilt “Diamonds and Hearts in the Stars. “

The quilt exhibition features a colorful display of textiles made by quilters in Windsor County, and a challenge quilt display crafted by the Delectable Mountain Quilt Guild of the Bethel region. Their first Virtual Quilt Exhibition, found at billingsfarm.org/34th-annual-quilt-exhibition, features in-depth conversations with the quilters about their quilt-making process and a behind-the-scenes look at the exhibition and jurying process over the course of the exhibition. View quilting demonstrations and join in for Thursday Threads Online, a weekly series featuring fiber arts and textile-related crafts.

Whether visiting onsite or online, guests will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite quilt to receive the People’s Choice Award. Vote while visiting the Quilt Exhibition. Online voting begins on July 24. The People’s Choice will be announced on Friday, Aug. 14.

The Quilt Exhibition runs through Aug. 23 at Billings Farm.
