Free-for-all – throw out the recipe (and leave a mess)

Most important part: The recipe you used to concoct your Half-baked Quilt.

All quilts must have a hanging sleeve attached to the back at the top edge. The hanging sleeve measurements are as follows: the width of the quilt less one inch at each end and with a depth of 3 inches

All entries must have a sewn-on cloth label on the back listing the name of piece, the artist’s name, address, and phone number The label must contain the same name and contact information that appears on the entry form.

Entries must be packed in a cloth bag, i.e. pillow case, with the artist's name on it. This makes sure the piece can be returned to the artist in good condition.

Artists are responsible for door-to-door shipment and return freight.

Alaska Fiber Festival retains the right to disqualify pieces that do not meet exhibition standards.
