“The show is open to all quilters, not just Farragut residents,” she added.
“An entry form and important dates can be found at farragutparksandrec.org/quilt-show.”
“The show will feature a wide variety of designs, from 19th-century crazy quilts to quilted interpretations of modern art,” added a Town press release. “Information about each quilt will be included in a special booklet given to attendees.”
For those chosen, quilts may be dropped off from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13.
A special reception will be held for the quilt owners, their guests and the public from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Feb. 19.
“The Farragut Quilt Show is part of a rotating series of art shows sponsored by the Arts and Beautification Committee,” said Town Recreation & Event manager Merritt Piper. “Town staff and the Arts and Beautification Committee are excited for the upcoming show Feb. 18-19.
“We have had a lot of interest in showing quilts so far and are excited to share the collection of quilts with the public.”
