‘Floral Bouquets’ was made by Mary Jane Arvidson of Brownsville.

The quilt exhibition is a juried show, with each of the exhibition’s three jurors selecting a quilt they thought most deserving of recognition. Linda Diak of Chester was recognized for her quilt, “Berkeley,” by Juror Marti DelNevo; “Floral Bouquets” made by Mary Jane Arvidson of Brownsville was selected by Juror Nola Forbes, and Norma Ippolito of Chester was selected by Juror Froncie Quinn for her quilt, “Confetti Carnival,” which also received the Billings Farm & Museum Staff Choice award.

The quilt exhibition is open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Aug. 22. Visitors can view a colorful display of textiles made by quilters in Windsor County, a Challenge Quilt display crafted by the Heart of the Land Quilters’ Guild of the Hartland, Vermont area, along with several historic quilts from the museum’s collection. See quilting demonstrations and enjoy scavenger hunts for young and old. From July 22 through Aug. 19, join us for Thursday Threads, a weekly series featuring interactive fiber arts and textile-related demonstrations and crafts.

Our virtual quilt exhibition, found at billingsfarm.org/quilt-exhibition features in-depth conversations with jurors and close up views of all of the quilts.

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 19. The People’s Choice will be announced on Friday, Aug. 13.
