Annual Spring Quilt Show – ‘The Joy of Quilts’

The 2022 Spring Quilt Show at Historic Fort Steuben will take place from April 4th through April 18th.

Each year the public is invited to bring in their treasured quilts, old and new alike, either made by themselves or someone else, to put on display. The show has become a popular event which brings ‘joy’ to the proud owners/creators of the quilts as well as the many folks who come to view the quilts.    Normally, there are approximately 30 quilts (depending on the sizes of the quilts) and a variety of patterns and ages on display.   Hand and machine quilts are both welcome.

This year you may again “vote for your favorite” for a $1 donation for each vote. Voting is strictly by choice and visitors who prefer to just come enjoy the beauty of the quilts are most welcome to do that.

Anyone wishing to display a quilt in the show may call 740.283.1787 or email mary@visitsteubenville.com. for an application.  Applications must be completed and returned by March 15th and the quilts must be delivered to the Fort Visitor Center by March 29th.   There is no fee to enter a quilt in the show.

Admission, as always, is free. Donations are welcome.  Hours are Monday through Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm, and Sundays from 11:00am to 4:00pm.

So, whether you are a proud owner/creator of a quilt to enter or want to view and appreciate their beauty and workmanship, don’t miss this opportunity to experience the ‘Joy of Quilts’ at Historic Fort Steuben this spring!
