Quilt Exhibits

Maine Quilts provides members of Pine Tree Quilters Guild, Inc. and other quiltmakers the opportunity to share their work with those who appreciate this wonderful art form. 

Display Quilts Division 
This exhibit is open to all quilters, from beginners to the accomplished artist and from youth to seniors. A quilt is truly an expression of thoughts and feelings; often the quilt will tell a personal story. 

Judged Quilts Division
Chaired by Pam Nourse 
Entries in the judged division may be the work of individuals or groups. Elimination Judging takes place prior to the show’s opening and is done by two experienced judges. Having a quilt judged is an opportunity to learn one’s strong points and weaknesses and provides the individual with knowledge to improve his or her quilt making as he or she continues to create wonderful quilts.

It is always astonishing and delightful to see what quilters come up with in the yearly challenge.
