Spring Quilt Show and Raffle

Brilliant colors, varied textures and creative designs make the Annual Spring Quilt Show at Historic Fort Steuben a delight to the eyes. Over 30 examples of pieced and hand or machine stitched quilts will be on display from April 1 through 13 in the Fort Steuben Visitor Center at 120 S. 3rd Street in Steubenville.

Quilting is one of the oldest crafts and developed from necessity. Piecing together a variety of fabric scraps to produce a useful yet beautiful source of warmth is a process that has been found in societies around the world. This year's exhibit features old traditional quilts, including one made from flour sacks, as well as modern quilts put together as recently as last month. Each is a unique expression of the creator as well as a piece of history.

The entries come from Ohio and West Virginia. Some are family heirlooms while others are purely decorative. The owners of the quilts have submitted personal information on many of them.

In addition to the quilt display this year, the Fort is offering a “Quilter’s Dream Tote Raffle” which has fabric pieces, patterns and more plus a gift card to JoAnn Fabrics that add up to a $100 value. Tickets are on sale at $2 each or six for $5 and will be sold throughout the run of the exhibit. The winner will be announced on April 15.

The exhibit is open from Monday-Friday from 10am to 4pm, on Saturdays and Sundays from 11-4. For more information call 740-283-1787.
