The City recently announced that the Quilters Holiday Quilt Show is on display at City Hall, according to a press release.
The Proper Bostonian Quilters Guild (PBQ) is a collection of women quilters representing the city and surrounding towns. PBQ members are active in the community and seek ways to comfort people in need by providing them with quilts and pillowcases.
“Having these quilts hung throughout City Hall is a great way to celebrate the holidays and recognize a few of the generous people who make the holiday season so special in the City of Boston,” said Mayor Martin Walsh, according to the press release. “I encourage everyone to stop by City Hall this month to see the quilts in person.”
“City Hall is such a great venue for exhibiting our quilts, and we are proud to contribute to Boston culture in this way,” said Susan Powers, president of the Proper Bostonian Quilters Guild, according to the press release. “We are thankful to the Mayor and the Office of Arts and Culture for this wonderful opportunity to showcase our work.”
The 40 quilts on display are a vast array of sizes and feature holiday designs and festive colors.
“This year, we wanted to take a different approach to the traditional holiday decorations usually displayed in City Hall,” said Julie Burros, chief of Arts and Culture, according to the press release. “These quilts are an excellent reflection of the talent, diversity, and creativity of the people of Boston. They also add a welcome bit of color and warmth to our beloved concrete walls here at City Hall.”
The quilts will be on display until Dec. 29.
