Outer Banks Quilt Show Returns to Roanoke Island Festival Park
Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo will kick off their 2015 season with the annual Outer Banks Community Quilt Show in March.
Vintage and antique quilts of all sizes will be on display. The show will include quilts made, or owned by quilters from the area, and by those with close ties to the Outer Banks. A wide range of quilting techniques including quilting, embroidery, applique’, and other needlework and embellishments will be showcased. Have quilting questions? Knowledgeable quilters will be available to answer questions and describe the featured quilts.
“Fun Little Quilts” can be seen in the Art Gallery lobby area, all made by the quilting community. They will feature one or both of two selected fabrics in fun and creative ways. This special exhibit is designed for the viewer to enjoy the innovation and imagination of the quilting artist.
A selection of quilts on display at the show will be available for sale at the discretion of the individual quilt maker.
