Deadline: September 16, 2011 (RECEIVE)

SuperShuttle Quilt Challenge
International Quilt Festival

and SuperShuttle
Houston, TX
November 2-6, 2011

International Quilt Festival/Houston, the largest annual quilt show, sale, and quiltmaking academy in the world, and SuperShuttle, the only nation-wide shared-ride transportation company, have teamed up to issue a special challenge to Festival attendees.

Submit a SuperShuttle-themed quilt block, and you could be chosen to win one of several prizes, in addition to having your block incorporated into the official 2011 SuperShuttle quilt! The quilt will be on display at International Quilt Festival/Houston (Nov. 3-6, with Preview Night on Nov. 2), and then hung at the company’s Houston office.

The prizes are as follows:
• Grand Prize—$150 cash
• First Place—$125 cash
• Second Place—$100 cash
• Third Place—$75 cash
• Fourth through Tenth Places—Complimentary round-trip airport/hotel SuperShuttle transportation for the 2011 Houston Festival only.

Quilt blocks should measure 9”x 9” (finished) or 9.5” x 9.5” (unfinished), and feature a SuperShuttle-themed design. Visit the SuperShuttle website at for inspiration.

Block submissions will be judged by representatives from International Quilt Festival and SuperShuttle. Blocks will be evaluated according to workmanship, creativity, adherence to the theme, and overall design.

Blocks should be the work of only one person, and each entrant may submit only one block. Entries must be sent to arrive no later than SEPTEMBER 16, 2011. Winners will be notified by SEPTEMBER 23, 2011. If your block is not a prizewinner, but one of the other 10 chosen for inclusion in the quilt, you will also be notified at this time.

Note: Quilt blocks will not be returned to the artist, regardless of whether or not they are chosen for inclusion.
