Contribute to the Northwest Folklife Community Quilt!

Northwest Folklife will be celebrating the folk art of quilting at the 2024 Northwest Folklife Festival. We will be soliciting 15” quilt blocks from the community to be displayed at the 2024 Northwest Folklife festival. After the festival, the blocks will be sewn into a community quilt.

Northwest Folklife’s Community quilts are part of our historical archive, and have been used and displayed in a variety of ways over the years. We currently use them as a backdrop for our digital in-studio content, filmed for our virtual festival.
