Quilt National: Returning and Coming Soon
Quilt National '13, the eighteenth international juried competition for new innovative quilts, will be on display from May 24 to September 2, 2013 at the Dairy Barn Arts Center in Athens, Ohio. If you want to see some of the best art quilts in the world then mark your calendar.
If you're near the Columbus, Ohio, area, you can view selected quilts from the previous show, Quilt National '11, at the Ohio Craft Museum, 1665 W. Fifth Ave. in Columbus through Mar. 24, 2013. They are open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 5 pm and on Sat. and Sun. from 1 to 4 pm.
I reviewed the Quilt National 2011 show and all three of my favorites are included in the show at the Ohio Craft Museum and is also on their website: "Meadow Pine 2" by Nelda Warkentin, "52 Pickup" by Bette Uscott-Woolsey, and "Global Warming" by Paula Kovarik.
