The Festival Gallery of Quilt Art: Good For You
An international juried and judged exhibition of Art Quilts
Prizes are awarded based on the interpretation of theme, excellence in design, and craftsmanship.
The International Quilt Festival has issued a call for entries in an international juried and judged exhibition of art quilts – Good for You.
If you’re interested, the closing date for online submissions is 4 April 2011.
See the IQF website for more information such as prizes awarded, dimention details, etc.
What’s good for you? Various studies tell us that exercise, and eating healthy, etc. are good for you. Stress, meat, chocolate, coffee, red wine, and video games, are not. Explore what’s good for you in this contest and exhibition from International Quilt Festival. You submit a quilt and have a friend pat you on the back and tell you “Good for you!” Entries are art quilts that speak to the theme. Any techniques—piecing, appliqué, embroidery, photo transfer, whole cloth and/or manipulated fabric, etc.—may be used as long as they are appropriate for the quilt (consisting of three layers) and the theme.
Quilts must be made specifically for the contest and must not have been published in books, calendars, magazines, newsletters, web sites, blogs, or any other form of publication prior to November 2011.
