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 must contain some piecing work but you can still do some appliqué with this if you want

  • The piece may be machine or hand quilted, but not just in the border if you have one.  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 quilt drop off date is Tuesday, March 30, 3:00pm - 6:00pm. Please bring your completed quilt to Sharon Heeres' home. Members can find her address in our member directory.  Please complete the online Museum Show Quilt Registration Form, print it and turn it in with your quilt. Quilts will be hung at the Northside Library April 1 thru April 28. The quilts will be not be professionally judged this year, but there will be viewers choice and staff choice awards.
