The objective of the Judged Show is to promote and encourage the art and appreciation of quiltmaking and wearable art. We strive to encourage excellence in quiltmaking and to educate quilters and the general public by presenting the finest examples of traditional and contemporary quilts and art garments that the members can produce by:

1. Providing an exhibition and competition to spotlight the current work of IQA quiltmakers; and
2. Rewarding excellence in design and craftsmanship through the presentation of awards based on qualified and impartial judging.

Quilts/garments are to be entered for judging in the following categories. IQA and its jurors or judges reserve the right to move an entry to a category other than the one in which it was entered without notifying the entrant. Final placement will be at the discretion of the judges.

  • Small: Quilts that do not fall within the miniature definition (Example: an 18 in x 26 in or 45.7 cm x 66 cm quilt) and one length + one width of the quilt must not exceed 120 in (305 cm)
