The Quilted Word Challenge
Welcome to the 2021 Quilt Show Challenge!
Quilts have always been an instrument for artists to convey a message or feeling, but you can also make a quilt that “speaks” to viewers, literally. Words on quilts can be a great way to express yourself. In your own words, you can make us laugh or make us think, just by expressing your thoughts on the front of your quilt.
- Size: your quilt cannot exceed 40” on any side.
- Qualifications: WORDS must feature prominently on the quilt, if you use “text” fabric as your WORDS qualification, it must make up at least 50% of the fabric used.
- Words may be appliqued, pieced, drawn on with fiber paint or ink, or be printed on the fabric used to make the quilt (see above).
- Our show is a family-friendly event and these quilts should entertain, inspire, or educate, not offend. This challenge is not the place for profanity, inappropriate language or disparaging statements.
Please respect Copyright Laws that protect other’s original works. Use your own words or material that is in the Public Domain.
If you have any questions about the rules, please send an email to Kathi Cappellini, 2021 Show Chair, at QUShowChair@quiltersunlimited.org Thank you for joining in the Challenge, I can’t wait to see what you make.
