Since the theme of this year’s quilt show is “Celebrate 20” in honor of the Guild’s 20th anniversary and the year 2020, we challenge our fellow Guild members to be creative by making a quilt that celebrates the number 20.
What does 20 mean to you? The interpretation can take you as far as your imagination can go. Look for inspiration over the coming months. Have you seen the number 20 somewhere? What were you doing 20 years ago, where were you when you were 20 years old, any special events or memorable celebrations about the number 20? Have fun and be creative! We hope you’ll participate.
Quilt Show Co-Chairs Mary Williams and Pam Luke
Quilt Show: September 18-19, 2020 Quilt Submission: August 20, 2020 - The August Guild Meeting
The completed quilt must measure 20” x 20” - no smaller or larger than 20” on any side.
The numeral 20 or the word “TWENTY” must be visible on the front of the quilt. It can be represented in any form (20, Roman Numeral, mathematical, etc) and any size as long as it is visible. Be creative. Mixed media embellishments are plentiful and a fun way to add numbers or words to your quilt.
Any construction method or combination of methods may be used but the quilt must include three layers: top, batting, and backing. It must have stitching, tying or quilting to hold the layers together.
One entry per member.
Respect copyrights and document sources (This information will go on the show entry form if applicable. Also, you’ll have space to include a short statement about the inspiration for the quilt, the technique or how it relates to the theme. This form will be available at a later date.)
Attach a label to the back. Include your name, and title if you choose.
Attach a 4" sleeve to the back of your quilt.
