If you are thinking about entering a quilt at Festival of Quilts do consider entering one of the Guild sponsored categories.
The Quilters' Guild Challenge at FoQ 2018
This category is open to all members of The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles and all European Guilds which are part of the European Quilt Association. The theme can be interpreted literally, metaphorically, poetically - as widely as the maker wishes.
Quilts should reflect the theme for 2018: 'Stitch(ing) through time'.
1st Prize: £1,500.00
2nd Prize: £750.00
3rd Prize: £250.00
The 1718 Challenge - for 2018 only
This category is for quilts that replicate the 1718 Coverlet. Quilts can be full or partial reproduction pieces replicating the blocks and designs used in the original 1718 Coverlet: either follow the design and templates exactly, or interpret the elements to suit your individual design whilst keeping the spirit of the original piece. We apologise that due to limited space we may not be able to hang all entries. We intend to confirm whether or not we are able to hang your piece by mid-June 2018.
This one-off category will have one first prize winner only. The prize will be a private viewing of the original 1718 Silk Patchwork Coverlet at St. Anthony's Hall, York (valid for 2 people) during 2019, and a 1718-related goody bag.
Details of all other categories are available on the Festival of Quilts website
