May 1st Deadline is approaching...


A contest for all quilters – The Quilt Alliance encourages everyone who makes quilts to enter their annual contest regardless of your style (traditional, modern, art) or technique (longarm, hand quilting, appliqué, pieced...) -- all are welcomed and valued! This year’s theme is “Playing Favorites” and they encourage entrants to work deep inside their comfort zone and happy place.

To enter, make a 16” by 16” wall quilt showcasing your very favorite pattern or technique. Whether it's double wedding ring or hexies, crazy quilting, textile art or modern, make your quilt about whatever you love most in quilting right now. The Alliance is interested in documenting the state of quilting in 2016—let your favorites be included.

Find inspiration in these projects:
Inspiration is always right around the corner for your next quilt, whether it's found in a quilt shared through the Quilt Alliance’s Quilters' S.O.S. - Save Our Stories (Q.S.O.S.) oral history collection (including more than 1,000 interviews with quiltmakers), or spotted in The Quilt Index, an online collection of more than 75,000 quilts. The Quilt Index, a partner project of Michigan State University Museum, MATRIX at MSU, and the Quilt Alliance, contains records and images of historical and contemporary quilts contributed by museums, documentation projects, historical societies, guilds and private collectors from the U.S. and around the world.
