Quilt Challenge

Seasons of Mother Nature

Mother Nature is full of surprises!  Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall bring so much color and seasonal changes.  Everyone will pick a season from a bag.  Think about your favorite memories within the season you received.  Is it a smell, a color, a taste, an animal or holiday.  It can be anything related to that season.  Use your imagination and get creative, Mother Nature will be your guide.  Look out your window and get inspired.  We hope you will join us in this challenge and design a quilt that will show off the Season’s of Mother Nature.

Quilt Challenge Guildlines

  • Register before, during or after guild meetings.  There is no registration fee. You can also contact the chairpersons, Sharon Heeres & Heide Peterson.

  • The quilt must measure 20” high and 20” wide, including any borders and binding.

  • Your entry may be pieced, paper-pieced, appliquéd, and/or embellished.

  • The piece may be machine or hand quilted.  The piece may be professionally quilted with the quilter's name included on the entry form.

  • A label on the back of your quilt is required and should include the quilt's title, your name, and the year made.

  • A hanging sleeve is optional; however quilts without hanging sleeves will be pinned to the wall.  If you are considering entering other shows, you may want to follow their guidelines for hanging sleeves.  If you choose to have a hanging sleeve, please provide a minimum 1/4 inch leeway so it can be used when we hang with pins.

  • Any quilt submitted for display by Southport Quilters' Guild will be reviewed by a committee consisting of a representative of the venue, the Challenge coordinators, a board member, and the president of the board.  The decision to accept or reject a quilt is final.

Challenge quilts must be turned in no later than the museum quilt drop off date (March 3, 2020).  Please complete the online Museum Show Quilt Registration Form, print it and turn it in with your quilt. Quilts will be hung at the Kenosha Public Museum the month of March and the Kenosha Public Library in April. The quilts will be professionally judged and be up for two viewer's choice awards from museum and library patrons.
