Houston, TX and beyond: June 6, 2019 – August 31, 2022
Theme: Entries are quilts that speak to the theme of Sapphire (blue) quilts. Quilters have long used Sapphire (blue) to symbolize trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. It is often associated with depth and stability. A selection of Sapphire quilts will make a powerful statement as we celebrate our 45th anniversary as the largest quilt show, sale, and quiltmaking academy in the United States. Any techniques—piecing, appliqué, embroidery, photo transfer, whole cloth and/or manipulated fabric, etc.—may be used as long as they are appropriate for the quilt and the theme.
Deadline: February 18, 2019
