  • The Delaware Quilt Documentation Project will hold a Quilt Harvest Day from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 9 at the Blue Ball Barn in Alapocas Run State Park, 1914 W. Park Drive, Wilmington.
    The project is designed to record the rich tradition of quilt-making in the state of Delaware and to help preserve its legacy for future generations. Owners of quilts made before 1950 are encouraged to bring their quilts to this informative documentation process which involves photographing each quilt, recording its physical characteristics, and gathering historical information about the quilt and/or the quilt-maker.
    Admission to the session is free and there is no cost for the documentation of quilts made in Delaware. Walk-ins are welcome, but an appointment is recommended to guarantee that a particular quilt is included in the documentation process. For more information, call (302) 739-6402 or visit www.delawarequilts.org/
