Voices - Quilt Alliance Logo 2017

Announcing Voices, the 11th Annual Quilt Alliance Contest, Exhibition & Auction.

As part of their mission, the Quilt Alliance records the stories of quilts and quiltmakers through their oral history projects. They value the human voice as well as your voice expressed in cloth and thread. They encourage everyone who makes quilts to enter their annual contest regardless of their style (traditional, modern, art) or technique (longarm, hand quilting, applique, pieced…) –all are welcomed and valued!

They invite entrants to share their opinions, polemics, memories, language, conversation and truths in the form of a quilt. Help them document the state of quilting in 2017—let your voice be heard.

There is no fee to enter. But you must be a member of the Quilt Alliance to participate. Join or renew online here.

  • Each entry must be a quilt (three layers stitched together).
  • Finished quilts must be 16″ x 16″ in size
  • Quilts must include a label affixed to the back with at minimum: artist’s name, title, date, location made
  • Stitch a 4″ sleeve to the top of the quilt.

All entries become a donation to the Quilt Alliance, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and after exhibition, will be auctioned to benefit the mission of the organization. All entries will be documented and shared on the Quilt Alliance website.

The last day to register and postmark your quilt is June 2, 2017 until midnight CST. (May 1, 2017 is the deadline for submission for all artists ordering photography of their quilt).
