International Quilt Festival, Houston, TX: October 24 – November 1, 2015. May travel till September 2016.
International Quilt Festival wants to know what you are having for dinner tonight, and would like to invite you to participate in our new exhibit, What’s for Dinner?, which will premiere at International Quilt Market and Festival 2015 in Houston.
We’ll “set the table” for this Special Exhibit on the show floor with enlarged “place settings”, complete with a placemat/tablecloth, napkin, fork, knife, spoon, and a plate full of “what you are eating for dinner.” This could be your favorite dinner at home, in a restaurant, or what you have for Sunday dinner. We are excited about this theme and hope that it will show a variety of interpretations, fabric choices, and views into different cultures, rituals, and lifestyles. Think colorful, fun, outside the box, and visually appealing!
All quilts must be uniform in size, horizontal format, with nothing hanging off the sides, top, or bottom. The finished quilt size, or “place setting,” must be 24” x 15” (width x height) and cannot exceed 2″ in depth.
Deadline: August 15, 2015
