Corner of the Past Museum Hosts Quilt Show

Both traditional and contemporary patterns will be featured when the Trillium Quilters Guild display their works at the 13th Annual Quilt Show hosted by the Sister Bay Historical Society at the Corner of the Past Museum on Saturday and Sunday, August 14 and 15.

The handiwork of local artisans will be on display throughout the Old Anderson House, the centerpiece of the museum grounds. Formats ranging from wall hangings and lap quilts to full-sized bed quilts will illustrate four favorite patterns: Shaded Four Patch, Trust Me, Harmonic Convergence and Mile-a-Minute. The quilts are the product of workshops taught by guild members and guest teachers.

Hours for the show are 9 am – 3 pm on Saturday and 11 am – 3 pm on Sunday. Saturday visitors may take advantage of the free hop-on-hop-off trolley service operating in conjunction with the Sister Bay Festival of the Arts. The trolley ride will feature narrations by members of the Historical Society.

Saturday morning, visitors may also stop by the Historical Society’s popular Farmers’ Market for fresh, locally grown produce and at the Kossel Barn to view a Heritage Craft demonstration of primitive rug hooking presented by Patsy Weich.

Admission to the Quilt Show is $3 per person. The museum grounds are open at no charge to visitors throughout the weekend for self-guided or docent-led tours.

The Corner of the Past Museum is located on Highway 57 and Fieldcrest Road, approximately 1 1/2 miles southeast of downtown Sister Bay.
