A Tapestry of Colors and History at Quilt Show – NC

There are some incredible works of art that not only display the true talent of the artist but also tell a great story. Quilts can absolutely fall into this category as each one is carefully made with diverse techniques, carefully chosen fabrics, and purposefully planned patterns. There is true artistry displayed in a quilt – the vision and passion of the quilter shown in the fabrics and colors chosen. Many are often made to tell a story, using materials that have meaning. Whether you are deep into the art of quilting yourself or love to admire these works of art, the Quilt Show in Manteo, NC is for you!
The Outer Banks Community Quilt Show will be taking place until March 21, 2015 and is completely free and open to the public. New and antique quilts from quilt owners and makers will be on display in the Event Room at Roanoke Island Festival Park. You will see quilts of all sizes and styles and in the past there have even been some amazing quilts from the 19th century.
