This unique quilt will be exhibited at QuiltCon2023 in the Community Outreach Category!
Adirondack Abstract was inspired by the High Peaks of the Adirondacks and the beautiful lakes and rivers in Upstate New York. The pattern and quilting were designed and drafted by our members specifically for the QuiltCon 2023 "Colorshift" Community Outreach Challenge. The quilt top was assembled during a fun guild sewing day using traditional piecing methods. Each participating member received the fabric and instructions to sew one geometric area of the pattern. (There were 24 individual areas.) Then all of the areas were stitched together, like joining pieces of a puzzle! The finished top was quilted by one of our members using a walking foot on a domestic sewing machine. We are very pleased with the teamwork that went into creating this piece, and we are proud of the way it represents the landscape of our region.
Our book-cover-inspired mini quilt show is installed in the Sand Lake Town Library through March 2023.
The collection includes some of the original quilts as well as 10 new pieces.
