1812 ½ - War of 1812 Quilt Challenge – Part Two?

  • Did you have so much fun making your quilt for the Great Lakes Seaway Trail War of 1812 Quilt Challenge that you’d like to do it again? 

  • Perhaps you didn’t quite get your 1812 quilt finished in time for the show, maybe you only had the top pieced by the show date?

  • Maybe you bought your fabric and had incredible plans for an 1812 quilt - but life got in the way and you couldn’t even start your quilt

Well, we can fix all those problems!  Of course, you have to do the work.

Due to the incredible popularity of our Traveling Exhibit of the War of 1812 quilts we have decided to do it again!  We are planning to have an “1812 ½ Quilt Show" this September!

Mary with the Markham Quilt Guild enjoyed the 1812 Quilt Challenge!

On September 29 and 30 (the official New York State day of Commemoration for the War of 1812) we are going to hang the 26 quilts and the story panels from the traveling exhibit here in Sackets Harbor for one more viewing! 

If you would like to enter another 1812 quilt or finish up the one you started (or even just enter your quilt top is that’s all you had time to do) we would be proud to hang it for this special show.

Enter a quilt or just come to view the 26 winners. 

Plus, we have been in touch with some of our wonderful long term vendors and they are excited about coming back this fall so you could even just come to shop!

We still plan to have our big annual quilt show March 16 and 17 next year with the “Beauty of the Byways” theme but we thought it would be fun to get together again this fall.

Send me an email ( or give me a phone call (315-646-1000 ext. 203) let me know what you think and we can talk about the details.
