Modern Quilts Unlimited 2013 Block Challenge

By Janelle Cahoon, Quiltcentric

Are you a quilter with a talent for design?  Have you ever wanted to see your work published in a quilt magazine?  If so, this may be the contest for you.

Modern Quilts Unlimited magazine has announced a quilt block design contest, and the 3 winning designers will have their blocks and instructions published in a future issue of the magazine and/or on their website.  In addition, the 1st Prize winner will receive a Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Tool, 2nd Prize winner will receive a fabric selection from CHE FAB Fabrics! And the 3rd Prize winner will receive Pellon batting.  The top 12 entries will all receive a one-year subscription to Modern Quilts Unlimited magazine.

The Official Rules are posted here.  Your block design should be 12 ½” x 12 1/2“ and must be an original design never have been published anywhere else, including in any blog post.  It can be any type or style of quilt block, and designs are to be submitted electronically.

The deadline for entries in the Block Challenge is July 31, 2013.

Since the entry materials say the Challenge is seeking “fresh ideas”, you might want to check out the magazine if you’re not already a subscriber.  The Modern Quilts Unlimited website is here  if you want to take a look at their style before starting work on designing your Block Challenge entry.
