The Activity Barn at Billings Farm & Museum has been transformed by the incredible display of color and design of the 44 artfully crafted quilts in the 36th Annual Quilt Exhibition. The exhibition features contemporary quilts made by Windsor County Quilters, challenge quilts using neckties by the Delectable Mountain Quilters, and historical quilts with optical illusion patterns from the museum’s collection. The winning quilts can be viewed daily through July 10 from 10AM to 5PM. The Quilt Exhibition is included in the price of admission.
Quilt enthusiasts are invited to become Quilt Exhibition volunteers. Volunteers engage with guests and facilitate the quilt scavenger hunt while surrounded by beautiful, local quilts. The Billings Farm Volunteer Program is a way to make meaningful connections with the Billings community. There are flexible time slots available through July 10.
