Beauty of the Byways – New Quilt Show Challenge
Remember the War of 1812 Quilt Challenge? The Great Lakes Seaway Trail has announced its newest challenge and theme, Beauty of the Byways. I spent my summers growing up at a small cottage on the St. Lawrence River, so this project has a certain air of romance that appeals to me (I’m such a sap). The deadline for registration has already passed, but you can keep up with the show by reading the show’s blog at Beauty of the Byways Great Lakes Seaway Trail Quilt Challenge.
Speaking of byways… by the way, the War of 1812 Quilts are on a 2-year traveling exhibit tour with the top quilts from the 2012 Great Lakes Seaway Trail Quilt Show. The next event they’ll be appearing at is the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Williamsburg, VA between February 21-24 then it’s off to New Jersey. Get new dates as they are listed on the Great Lakes Seaway Trail quilting site.
