Every year The National Quilt Museum juries themed exhibits for quilters to enter. These are not contests and do not offer awards. Chosen quilts will be exhibited at the museum and possibly other venues.
Heart of America
The National Quilt Museum invites your guild to submit quilts to represent your group in a special juried regional exhibit called Heart of America. We are inviting current guild members in a region comprised of Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota to submit quilts that represent their best work. We would like to have two images of each quilt by December 19, 2014 (accompanied by a completed entry form) for the jury to select from for the exhibition. We encourage you on behalf of your guild to select representative quilts that are original designs or adaptations of a traditional design.
Heart of America will highlight the work of quiltmakers who are the mainstream of quiltmaking today, and will open here at the National Quilt Museum on January 9, 2015. The jury will select approximately 18 quilts. Notification of acceptance into the exhibition will be by December 22, 2014.
