1812 Quilts on Display at Fort Ontario all Summer Long!

If you missed the Great Lakes Seaway Trail War of 1812 Quilt Challenge Traveling Exhibit you will have a chance to see it this summer in Oswego, NY. The 26 best-of-show quilts from the 2012 challenge will be displayed at Fort Ontario thru September.

This International Traveling Exhibit of Cot-To-Coffin quilts combines history and fabric in an inspired storytelling fashion of the times. Story cards for each quilt share the factual history represented by the quilt or a tale of a family sending a loved one off to war. Plan to visit the Fort this summer, fun for the whole family. 

The last quilt made by the late Teresa Mitchell, founder of the Great Lakes Seaway Trail.
