April 13th is coming up! Have you entered a quilt yet?
Entries are due on April 13th and quilts are due in SLC on April 27th.
The HMQS has added a modern quilt category for the first time. The quilt show will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah and will be May 9th-11th. For those of you who have not hear of HMQS, this show is particularly focused on quilting that is harmonious with and appropriate to the quilt design. This doesn’t mean that simple or straight line quilting isn’t considered, or that other parts of the design don’t count. It just means that there is a particular focus on how well the quilting complements the design.
The category description for the show from HMQS is below.
Modern: Quilts that are functional, include bold colors, and are inspired by modern design. Minimalism, asymmetry, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work are often a part of modern quilt compositions, as are improvisational piecing and solid fabrics. Perimeter 220”- 480” Must be three layers; backing, batting and quilt top. What a great opportunity for all of us to show off our modern quilts.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Thanks and good luck to all!
