Old Aurora Colony Quilters

10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Old Aurora Colony Quilters gather ‘round the quilting frame at the museum on Tuesday mornings to hand quilt a project and enjoy each other’s company. Their hold a Block Contest each year in conjunction with the Old Aurora Colony Museum Quilt Show, and then hand quilt the winning results to raffle for the museum’s benefit. They know a lot about quilts and are great allies in preserving the 200+ historic quilts in the museum collection.

Want to learn to quilt, or use your quilting skills for a good cause? Join the fun on Tuesday mornings!

Do You Have A Quilt to Show?

The 47th annual Aurora Colony Quilt Show will be held October 11-20, 2019. This year’s theme is Rhapsody in Blue, so we are especially interested in quilts in blue hues or with musical themes—but what we prize above all else is beautiful quilts, be they modern or historical! If you have a treasure you would like to share, please complete the following form for each quilt entered and bring it with you when you come to the museum. Also, please include a good quality color photo of the quilt with the quilt owner’s name written on the back.

WE WILL RECEIVE QUILTS SEPTEMBER 16 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you need a different delivery time, please call 503.678.5754 to arrange it.

Please print the Quilt Show Entry Form and bring it with your quilt on September 16, 2019, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
