Airing of the Quilts originated years ago and was an annual tradition in the late spring or fall. The women would bring out all the quilts and hang them on the clotheslines, drape on the porch or any place that they could be aired out and prepped for the cold winter months ahead. That old tradition as turned into many forms of the same concept but more for show and inspiration vs the utility of winter prep. Draping the pews of a church with quilts has been a new tradition in it’s own right – whether for inspiration or memorial it is always a warm hearted feel to see all the quilts that have been pieced with love displayed in such a lovely backdrop as a church. SewEndipitous is lucky to partner with The Episcopal Church of Our Savior on Caldwell Street to bring you this activity!
