Vermont Quilt Festival at Norwich University

This past weekend, Norwich University once again hosted the ever-popular Vermont Quilt Festival. The three-day event, which attracts thousands of visitors from across the United States and abroad, is a showcase of quilting in New England, with over 400 quilts on display. In addition, the Vermont Quilt Festival offers courses on quilting, special exhibits and guided tours.

"The quilts this year are so gorgeous," said Marjorie Butler, who was taking time out Saturday afternoon to enjoy the sunshine and breeze outside Plumley Armory. Mrs. Butler has come for the last five years from her home in Littleton, NH. "The range of artistry is amazing. Some are very traditional, while others are like nothing I've seen before. It's a great time."
