Quilt Alliance “Twenty” Contest

Quilt Alliance “Twenty” Contest

By Janelle Cahoon, Quiltcentric

If you’re interested at all in winning a HandiQuilter Sweet Sixteen machine-quilting system, you might think about entering the new contest “TWENTY” announced by the Quilt Alliance, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Lower-level prizes will also be awarded, including a “Member’s Choice” award.  The theme “TWENTY” is described as “a broad theme that celebrates “twenty”:  the numeral, the concept, the quantity, the word.” 

The deadline for this contest is coming up quickly, on June 1, 2013, but the quilts are to be quite small at only 20 inches square so it might be reachable with some inspiration and effort.

Quilt Alliance members will need to pay a $5 per quilt entry fee, and non-members will pay $25 for their first quilt entry and $10 for each additional entry.  If you’re a non-member planning to enter more than one quilt, keep in mind that you can join the Quilt Alliance for $25/year.

If you’re thinking of entering the contest, you should be aware that entering your quilts in the contest means you’re simultaneously donating then to the Quilt Alliance.  After the contest ends, the quilts will be exhibited and then auctioned, with 100% of the proceeds going to support the Quilt Alliance.  The Quilt Alliance says that this auction is one of their most successful fundraisers and a great way to support their mission in a creative way.

To find out more about the contest or to download entry forms, go to the Quilt Alliance website.
