Pennington Day 2019 Quilt Show

Hopewell Valley Quilters are planning their annual Pennington Day show to be held on May 18, 2019, from 10 am to 4 pm in the Toll Gate Grammar School cafeteria.

The quilts on display will reflect a great variety of styles, from recently made quilts based on traditional patterns to contemporary works of fiber art. This year’s show will include three special exhibits.

The quilters challenged themselves to make small quilts with “It’s Not Easy Being Green” as a theme. The challenge quilts incorporate this theme in creative and diverse ways.

There will also be a display of antique quilts featuring the color green as well as creative interpretations of the show theme.

A third special exhibit will show other handcrafted things quilters like to make with needles and thread.

Viewers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite quilt in the show. The Viewers’ Choice Prize has been donated by Pennington Quilt Works.

Admission to the show is only $1.00, and proceeds benefit Pennington Day 2019.

Hopewell Valley Quilters is an informal group that has been meeting for over 35 years. The group meets both in the daytime and in the evening in the Hopewell Township branch of Mercer County Library. All are welcome. More information about the quilt group will be available at the show.

Toll Gate Grammar School is located on the corner of S. Main Street and E. Curlis Avenue. Entry to the show is on the north side of the school building. Handicapped parking will be available.
