In the American Tradition 2012

Several years ago International Quilt Festival created In the American Tradition, a beautiful showcase for traditionally influenced quilters. This special annual exhibit features the very best in contemporary traditional-based quilting.

You are invited to submit work for consideration for the 2012 edition of In the American Tradition. We are looking for both contemporary interpretations and traditional quilts, either by hand or machine, appliquéd, pieced, or wholecloth.

You may submit a total of two quilts for our consideration. Quilts must be a minimum of 25" x 25". There is no "made after" date requirement. Please do not submit a quilt that was included in a previous edition of In the American Tradition.

Completed submissions with visuals must be received online by April 27, 2012. You will be notified no later than June 1, 2012, 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 August 31, 2012. Quilts will be returned by the end of November 2012 if quilt does not travel, or arrangements may be made to have a quilt picked up at the conclusion of the show. If you agree to allow your quilt to travel, your quilt will be returned by the end of August 2013.
