Farmington Valley Quilters is sponsoring the second Connecticut Hang-A-Quilt Day on Saturday, June 20, with a rain date of Sunday, June 21. This free outdoor quilt exhibit will showcase the art and beauty of quilting.

Everyone who owns a handmade quilt is encouraged to display it outside their home on a fence, clothesline, railing, tree, garage, chair, or any other creative way to display it. Your neighbors who drive or walk by will enjoy its beauty. Ask a local business if you can display your quilt for the day. There is no fee or registration.

Last year quilts were displayed all over Connecticut. This year we may not be able to gather for an event, but we can add fun and beauty to Connecticut. Susan Elliott, past president of Farmington Valley Quilters, said, “Let’s make Connecticut fun and do our part in making a brighter, art filled world!”

If you participate, please post a picture of your quilt on social media with #CTHangAQuiltDay; everyone will be able to enjoy it no matter how confined we are.
