The ‘War of 1812 Bicentennial Quilt Show’ was on display last weekend in Sackets Harbor, New York with over 100 quilts on exhibit from quilters in Canada and the United States. The contest was organized by Seaway Trail executive director Teresa Mitchell, who passed away a few months ago. Ten of Teresa's quilts were also on display.

The rules asked for long quilts (30" x 70") which resulted in creative solutions to incorporating square ideas into rectangular formats.

The show will be traveling. Mancuso Quilt Shows will feature the War of 1812 Quilt Challenge at the World Quilt Show-New England in Manchester, NH August 16-19 and then at Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza September 13-16.

Local newspapers carried stories about the quilters this week. Do a web search for the words: quilt 1812 Sackets Harbor.
