Good for You: An exhibition of Art Quilts

Deadline: April 4, 2011 (POSTMARK) or (EMAIL)

Good for You

An international juried and judged exhibition of Art Quilts
The Festival Gallery of Quilt Art
Houston, TX
August 2011 through August 2014

Exhibition theme: Good for You.

What's good for you? Explore what's good for you in this contest and exhibition from International Quilt Festival. Entries are art quilts that speak to the theme. Any techniques—piecing, appliqué, embroidery, photo transfer, whole cloth and/or manipulated fabric, etc.—may be used as long as they are appropriate for the quilt (consisting of three layers) and the theme. Quilts must be made specifically for the contest and must not have been published in books, calendars, magazines, newsletters, web sites, blogs, or any other form of publication prior to November 2011.

Categories: There is only one overall category.

Limit on entries: Each entrant may submit up to two works that must address the theme. Any materials may be used. However, the final result must be flexible in nature and consist of three layers.

Who may enter: The entries may be the work of one person or more than one person as long as proper credit is given to all involved in the actual completion of the quilt. The person entering the quilt must have been directly involved in the quilt's creation. Limit two entries per person or group. Full-time employees of Quilts, Inc. are not eligible.

Length of exhibit: The participating works must be available for three years, from August 2011 through August 2014. Quilts will be returned to entrants in September 2014.

Selling Your Quilt: You may choose to offer your quilt for sale and, if you do, 20% of the selling price will be donated to the International Quilt Association (IQA).

No submission fee required.
