In Full Bloom III: Floral Quilts

Deadline: Friday, April 28, 2006

International Quilt Festival will again showcase flowers and floral quilts in a special exhibit, In Full Bloom III: Floral Quilts in Memory of Helen Pearce O’Bryant. This exhibit 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.

We would like to invite you to be considered for inclusion in the new exhibit. You may submit a total of 5 floral quilts for our consideration, for a submission fee of $25 (or $5 per quilt submitted). Please do not submit a quilt that was included in a previous edition of In Full Bloom.

Each quilt must have its own form completed and sent to us to be considered for the exhibit. We will gladly accept good quality digital photos of the quilts, or 35mm slides. Please see the visual instructions.

Completed submissions with visuals must be received in our office by Friday, April 28, 2006. You will be notified no later than Tuesday, June 2, 2006 regarding the quilts to be included in this exhibit along with shipping instructions. If selected, the quilts will need to arrive in Houston no later than Friday, September 22, 2006. If your quilt is selected and you agree to the full travel schedule, your quilt will be returned to you in May 2007.

We look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions, 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.
