In September, the American Quilter’s Society will celebrate their 30th anniversary during Quilt Week in Chattanooga. Thousands of quilters from across the country will be in attendance, bringing visitorship and economic impact to the region. To celebrate the art of quilting during the convention, PAC will blanket the downtown with original, colorful and dynamic patterns that will function as a wayfinder, a placemaker and as public art, said officials. The deadline for submissions is July 31.
