“Playing Favorites,” Quilt Alliance Annual Contest 2016

Asheville, NC

A contest for all quilters – we encourage everyone who makes quilts to enter our annual contest regardless of their style (traditional, modern, art) or technique (longarm, hand quilting, applique, pieced…) –all are welcomed and valued! This year’s theme celebrates playing with our favorites.

As usual, we welcome any technique, any concept that addresses the theme—but each entry must be a quilt (three layers stitched together). Finished quilts must be 16″ x 16″ in size and must include a label on the back to include at minimum the name of the artist, title, date & location made. In addition each quilt must have a 4″ sleeve sewn to the top of the quilt. All entries become a donation to the Quilt Alliance, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and after a national exhibition tour, will be auctioned to benefit the mission of the organization. All entries will be documented and shared in The Quilt Index (www.QuiltIndex.org).

 

Deadline:  May 1, 2016
