Island Quilters exhibit at library



SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Members of Island Quilters, a Mount Desert Island quilters group since 1992, will exhibit their work at the Southwest Harbor Public Library during the month of November.

Each year, the group challenges itself with a different theme. In honor of the Acadia National Park centennial, this year’s theme is “What Does Acadia National Park Mean to You?” All of the quilters were given small amounts of the same three fabrics and were challenged to use these for the sky, the water and the trees. Each quilter added whatever other fabrics and embellishments they wanted to use to create their own piece within a certain size. Each of the 25 small quilts tells a unique story.

An artists’ reception will take place on Friday, Nov. 4, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The public is invited. Call the library at 244-7065.
