34th Annual Quilt Exhibition Juried Quilts
Thirty-six quilts were entered into the juried exhibition this year. Congratulations to this year’s Quilt Exhibition Juror’s Choice and Billings Farm & Museum Staff Choice Award winners:
- Judi Simon-Bouton, White River Junction, VT, Square in a Square (#35), selected Colleen O’Neill;

- Susan Damone Balch, Reading, VT, Salmo at Sea (#31), selected by Marti DelNevo; and

A challenge requires specific style and construction rules agreed upon by quilt guild members, designed to improve their quilting skills while they enjoy comparing results. This year’s challenge, met by 11 quilters from the Delectable Mountain Quilt Guild in the Bethel, Vermont area, was to create a quilted placemat, and the challenge quilt display will reflect that theme with a playfully set table. Challenge quilts are numbered 37-47.
One award is given for a Bed Size Quilt (#1-17) and one for a Wall or Crib Quilt (#18-47). The Wall and Crib Quilt selections include this year’s Challenge Quilts. Learn more about each quilt in the exhibition by clicking the images below.
