2018 Quilt Show Fabric Challenge
2018 Quilt Show Fabric Challenge Rules
The challenge fabric selected for 2018 is Calypso Geometric Patch by Quilting Treasures. Quilting Treasures will be posting about our challenge on social media so be sure to like them on Facebook and follow them on Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter.
The fabric will be sold in ½ yard and 1 yard pieces at the general meetings until all fabric acquired from Quilting Treasures is sold. Price is $5.00 for a half yard, and $10.00 for a full yard. All profits from the sale of the challenge fabric will be donated to charity.
All current NBQA Members and Associate Members are eligible to participate.
The challenge fabric must be recognizable on the front side of the finished item. There is no minimum block size. The challenge fabric must be used within the design – not just as a border.
All items submitted must be constructed to include three layers (top, batting and back) and to be held together with stitching. A qualifying quilted item may include, but not be limited to, quilts, clothing, purses, totes, or other accessories.
The hanging size of the item must not be less than 10” x 10” (or a total of 40”) and no larger than 36” x 42” (or a total of 160”).
Completed entries must be brought to the February 2018 general meeting in order to be hung with the other 2018 Challenge entries at the quilt show. All entries must have a completed 2018 Quilt show entry form which will be available on line closer to the date of the quilt show. The entries will be displayed during the meeting and the members will vote during the break in variety of categories. Each category of entry will be eligible for a ribbon(s). The winners will be awarded at the Quilt Show.
If a challenge fabric entry is not entered into the NBQA voting at the February meeting it may still be entered in the quilt show; however it will not hang with the other challenge entries but in the general part of the show.
