Quilt artist Julia Graber of Brooksville has been accepted in the 2020 Stitch Your Art Out Quilt Competition at the 31st annual Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. Produced by Mancuso Show Management, the festival will take place in Hampton, Virginia, Feb. 27 - March 1.

 

Graber's quilt, "My Mother, Margaret Heatwole," will be on display at the show along with many other quilts, all competing for prize money. Winners will be selected at the show and announced on the website quiltfest.com on Feb. 27.

 

Every quilt displayed at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival takes great skill and talent to make it come to life. This quilt competition incorporates pieces from the best quilters in the U.S. that will be judged and on display to be enjoyed by quilt enthusiasts and other quilt artists.

 

 

Besides the competition quilts on display, the festival will feature workshops and lectures taught by a world-renowned faculty, a Merchant's Mall and special exhibitions including many presented by local quilt guilds.
