Contest to Benefit the Quilt Museum

There is still time to enter one more AQS contest for the Paducah Quilt Show.

Each year AQS sponsors a quilt contest and the items are donated to the annual Quilt Auction in Paducah. The 2009 theme is Twenty-five in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the American Quilter's Society. Here is the link for the rules and entry form for this contest:

The rules are easy - just make a quilt with 25 of anything — 25 blocks, 25 squares, 25 fabrics, 25 flowers — 25 of something. Each quilt must be constructed of fabric; be pieced, appliqu├ęd, or use other quiltmaking techniques; and be quilted by hand, machine, or both. The minimum size is 30" on a side; there is no maximum size.

$1,000 in cash prizes are awarded to the winners in this contest. Send the completed "Twenty-five" quilt and entry form to AQS by by March 2, 2009.

These quilts will be displayed at the show until it's time for the auction on Thursday.

Good luck with your entry. If you have any questions, please call Mary Beth Head at 270-898-7903.
