Events "A Vermont Quilt Sampler" Quilt Exhibition at Billings Farm & Museum

10 Jul - 2 Sep

About the Exhibition

The Vermont Quilt Sampler Exhibition will be displayed in the Billings Farm Historic Barn gallery from June 29 – September 2, 2024. For the first time, this annual juried quilt exhibition includes quilts submitted from throughout Vermont—from 13 out of 14 counties in fact!

The display features 56 quilts showcasing a sampler of skills and techniques, while also highlighting the stories of their makers. Interpretive panels and gallery labels guide visitors through themes including inspiration, current events, teaching and learning, fabric as a memory, humor, and joy. These themes explore the creative process and celebrate the emotional connections that quilts can provide.

Awards include Juror’s Choice and Staff Choice. Vote for your favorite quilt to be selected for the People’s Choice Award, which will be announced on July 27. Ballots are available in the exhibition hall

Visitors are invited to try engaging, hands-on activities, including scavenger hunts, a quilt piecing game, and a quilt “anatomy” display with touchable fabrics to show all the pieces that go into quilt making. Find quilt-related books for all ages in the exhibition space and create your own quilt square for a large signature quilt.

The exhibition is included with admission to Billings Farm & Museum. For more info visit billingsfarm.org/quilt-exhibition.
