Greenbelt Courthouse Quilt Exhibit

A quilt exhibit at a courthouse? It might sound a little unusual, but it's a wonderful venue.

My friends Ann Kelsall and Hilke Reid Hoefer, along with a group of volunteers, have once again organized and hung a wonderful exhibit at the Greenbelt Federal Courthouse. There are 74 quilts, at least 18 of which are art quilts. The show is already up and will hang until the first week of April. The courthouse is open from 10:00 to 5:00 daily, and the guards are accustomed to folks stopping by to check out the quilts.

This is the 5th year for this exhibit and the largest group of quilts yet. The courthouse has beautiful architecture that really lends itself to a quilt exhibit. I have two quilts in the show this year - Tangle and Luna. No photography is allowed so I can't show you the exhibit - you'll just have to check it out for yourself!
