Our Quilting Challenge for 2019 is now available!

This year's categories have been revamped in order to better support our submissions. The categories are as follows: 

Antique Quilts

Quilts over 50 years old. This means they must have been made prior to 1969. Any size, any type. 

Bed Quilts

Twin, full, queen, and king sized quilts. Includes any combination of hand- and machine- piecing and quilting. Our judge will take level of skill into account. 

Small, Crib, and Lap Quilts 

Any quilt smaller than a twin-bed quilt. Includes any combination of hand- and machine- piecing and quilting. Our judge will take level of skill into account. 

Wall Hangings

Any size quilt meant to hang on a wall or serve as a decorative piece. Includes any combination of hand- and machine- piecing and quilting. Our judge will take level of skill into account. 

Group Quilts (by 3 or more)

Any size quilt as long as it has been pieced and/or quilted by a combination of three (3) or more people. Includes any combination of hand- and machine- piecing and quilting. Our judge will take level of skill into account. 

Youth Quilts (16 or under)

Any size quilt by someone sixteen (16) years of age or younger. Quilting could have been supported by or machine-quilted by someone older, but the majority of the quilt should be the child's own work. 

Novice Quilts

Any size quilt created by someone with three (3) years or less quilting experience. Participants in this category should be aware that the judge may recategorize quilts into another category if the skill level is determined to exceed a novice level, regardless of years experience. 

Art Quilts

Any size quilt that is unique in design, materials, and/or execution. 

Other

Any size quilt that does not fit into another category or may not fit into the exact definition of a quilt (3 layers of fabric sewn together). This includes summer quilts, quilted clothing and accessories, special designs or methods (e.g. yo-yo quilts), quilted sculpture, or quilts using unconventional materials. 

Challenge Quilts

Any size quilt that is within the confines of our Quilting Challenge. 

Non-Judged

Want to submit more than 3 quilts? Want to submit a quilt someone else gave to you? Want to submit a quilt without being judged? Whether or not it is in the competition, we love seeing beautiful quilts! Please consider submitting to our Non-Judged category so people may admire beautiful works.
