You Can't Win If You Don't Enter

Our Facebook group has been pretty active about keeping this thread in the spotlight.

It's the one the lovely Kira Bell originally posted at the end of February from APQS.  How about a chance to win a George longarm quilting system valued at $6,650?  George is a sit-down machine with a generous 20" throat and large, flat workspace to easily maneuver your quilt.  All APQS machines are handmade, one at a time, by master craftspeople in Carroll, IA.

  



The entry form and details can be found here.  You can enter EVERYDAY, now thru July 1, 2013, 12:00 CST.  As Kira said, "It would be great if someone from our guild won this!".  Yes, it would!

On another note, do we have any takers who want to enter quilt (or two) in the HMQS (Home Machine Quilt Show) in Salt Lake City?  


That due date is rapidly approaching - April 13th.  We first mentioned it here, and you can find details here.  This is the year HMQS added a "modern" category and defined it like this:  Modern: Quilts that are functional, include bold colors, and are inspired by modern design. Minimalism, asymmetry, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work are often a part of modern quilt compositions, as are improvisational piecing and solid fabrics. Perimeter 220”- 480” Must be three layers; backing, batting and quilt top.

Based on that description, it looks like minis aren't being accepted.  :(
