In the American Tradition V

Deadline: Friday, April 28, 2006

Four years ago, International Quilt Festival created In the American Tradition, a beautiful showcase for traditionally influenced quilters. This special annual exhibit features the very best in contemporary traditional-based quilting.

You are invited to submit work for consideration for the fifth year of In the American Tradition. We are looking for both contemporary interpretations and traditional quilts, either by hand or machine, appliquéd, pieced, or wholecloth. In the American Tradition V will premiere at International Quilt Market and Festival, October 28–November 5, 2006. We would also like to retain selected quilts for possible exhibit at our spring edition of International Quilt Festival in Chicago in April 2007 and our Spring Quilt Market in May 2007.

To be considered for inclusion in the 2006 exhibit, please contact Darla Hartmann, Special Exhibits Assistant, at 713.781.6864 ext. 105, spexhibits2@quilts.com or Vicki Mangum, Manager of Special Exhibits, at ext. 106, spexhibits@quilts.com for an information form or visit the website for complete details.
