36th Annual Capital City Quilt Show-Out of the Blue

The Museum of Florida History and Quilters Unlimited of Tallahassee are proud to present the 36th Annual Capital City Quilt Show.

The 2018 show, Out of the Blue, opens August 31 and continues through October 28. This annual event features hand-crafted and machine-made contemporary quilts, ranging from small wall hangings to bed quilts. Visitors may also enjoy the display of challenge quilts, art quilts, and other traditional elements of the quilt show.

Each year the show highlights the Opportunity Quilt, which is designed and constructed by members of the guild. The 2018 Opportunity Quilt is titled Out of the Blue. The queen-sized quilt features a wide variety of blue fabrics assembled in a traditional Storm at Sea quilt pattern. By making a small contribution to Quilters Unlimited, visitors can qualify for a chance to win the Opportunity Quilt. Visitors may also bid on beautiful quilted items in a silent auction. Winners will be announced on October 28.

Educational activities offered during the show include the 2nd Saturday Family Program on September 8 and a special quilt hunt for kids. The quilts will also be available for viewing on the Museum's Pinterest page, which can be found at pinterest.com/museumflhistory.
