Quilt by Nessa Reifsnyder

Island Quilters, a Mount Desert Island quilters group since 1992, will exhibit their work at the Southwest Harbor Public Library during the month of November.

Each year, the group challenges themselves with a different theme. In honor of the Acadia Centennial, this year’s theme is “What Does Acadia National Park Mean to You?” All of the quilters were given small amounts of the same three fabrics and were challenged to use these for the sky, the water, and the trees. Each quilter added whatever other fabrics and embellishments they wanted to create their own piece within a certain size. Each of the 25 small quilts tells a unique story.

All are invited to an artists’ reception Friday evening, November 4, 5:30 – 7:30. For more information about the show or the reception, call the Library at 244-7065.
