Quilters of all levels are invited to participate in the Peabody Historical Society’s first-ever miniature quilt challenge: “Reflections on Old Favorites.” Participants will choose one quilt from a selection of three antique quilts in the society’s collection and create a miniature quilt inspired by the design, technique, fabric or color scheme of the original. There is no entry fee to participate in this challenge. Submissions for “Reflections on Old Favorites” will be exhibited along with the society’s antique challenge quilts at the Smith Barn on April 5 and 6.
Visitors will have the opportunity to cast a vote for their favorite quilt, and Viewers’ Choice ribbons will be awarded to the top three entries, including a $100 cash prize for first place. This event will also feature an exhibit of antique quilts from the society’s collection arranged throughout the Nathaniel Felton Senior House.
Entry forms must be received by Monday, March 3, to participate in the challenge and exhibit. For pictures of the antique challenge quilts, submission guidelines and entry forms, visit www.peabodyhistorical.org or contact Heather Leavell at 978-977-0514 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
