EVOLUTIONS 2017 is an open challenge to all quilters and fiber artists in celebration of yesterday’s traditions as well as tomorrow’s innovations. Evolution can be defined as growth—a process of continuous change, from lower to higher or from simpler to more complex. Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum challenges you to create your concept of an evolution quilt. Interpret evolutions any way you choose—on a personal level, on a global level, or perhaps related to changes and growth of your favorite means of creative expression, the quilt. There are no design restrictions. Ribbons will be awarded for first, second, and third place; the first place winner will be awarded a solo exhibit at RMQM in 2018.

Deadline:  October 31, 2016
