Bonham Quilt Hop quilt hangings have begun all over Bonham. The Bonham Visitor Center is overflowing with color and textures of all kinds. Many local and Grayson County residents have offered quilts to be displayed at the Bonham Visitor Center this year. Twenty-seven quilts were hung for display there yesterday. The quilt entries have grown over the years and it should be easy for anyone to find a favorite.
For your viewing will be T-shirt quilts and “quilts made by men for men” as well as “Art in a different way” quilts. The colors are different because they are for men or of memories of a college or of high school activities.
The main purpose of this display is to show all visitors that quilts of today are not the quilts of your grandmother. They can be about a hobby or about any subject that you are passionate about. You will see different techniques used as well as different materials in construction. The purpose of the Bonham Visitor Center exhibit is to show that quilting can be fun for anyone and to inspire and encourage young people into the art of quilting. Quilting could become a dying art and we would like to show the visitors to this exhibit that whatever your interest, it is possible to share it with someone else in a very useful as well as artistic way.
Please use the hashtag #BonhamQuiltHop when posting photos or blogging about our Quilt Hop, that way everyone can enjoy them also!
