Quilting With the Stars - Chautauqua Quilt Show 2016


The Emerald Coast Modern Quilt Guild has been invited to participate in the 2016 Quilt Show hosted by the Chautauqua Quilters Guild.  The show is Friday, February 12th and Saturday, February 13th, from 9am to 4pm each day at the DeFuniak Springs Community Center, 361 N. 10th Street, DeFuniak Springs, FL.  


The show theme is "Quilting With the Stars."  
  

We hope many of our talented, creative ECMQG'rs will enter MODERN quilts!


Scary?  Maybe.


Fun?  Definitely.


Worthwhile?  Most definitely!



Here is some information to help with your planning:
  • There is no limit to the number of quilts eligible for entry.  The fee for ECMQG, as a guest guild, is $5 per item.
  • There is no individual theme, and there are no restrictions as to when the quilt was completed.
  • The maximum size of any quilt is 96" x 96".  
  • Large quilts will need a hanging sleeve.  Small quilts (less than 36") do not need a hanging sleeve.  
  • Each quilt must have a fabric label stitched to the back of the quilt that contains the quilter's name and the name of the quilt.  
  • Quilts must be delivered to the DeFuniak Springs Community Center on February 11, 2016.  Cindy will be delivering quilts to the venue for us. 
  • This is NOT a juried show.  Viewer's Choice ribbons, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, will be awarded in three areas:  Large, Medium, and Small items.  
  • Entry forms will be EMailed to ECMQG'rs.
Wouldn't it be fun to see a large collection of modern quilts at the show?  What will you make?

We are in the planning stages of our group themed effort - Wonky Stars - but whether it's in the form of a fabric challenge or a group quilt, we don't know.
