2010 Quilt Contest – Seeking Color Harmony

“Seeking Color Harmony” is a contest designed to let you discover your inner quilter. Be it traditional or contemporary, folk or art quilt – capture whatever motivates you to quilt and create a piece to be entered into one of three categories. “Seeking Color Harmony” is a juried show and will be the feature Gallery display at Georgia Quilt Show 2010. The quilts then become a focal point of Original Sewing & Quilt Expo Fall 2010 events and will travel to Kansas City, MO and Minneapolis, MN, finishing their trek in Chicago, IL at Original Sewing & Quilt Expo’s newest location, the Schaumburg Convention Center.

NOTE: Prize winning quilts are required to travel with Original Sewing & Quilt Expo Fall 2010 events and will not be returned until after December 1, 2010.
