School Block Challenge - 2020
School Block Challenge is an annual quilt block competition and exhibit, sponsored by Moda Fabrics, for children grades K-12 nationwide. Moda generously provides three challenge fabrics that must be included in every block entry. Students can put their math skills & creativity to work in creating a quilt square of their own design.
Entries are judged in the following categories: K-4th grade, 5th–8th grade, 9th–12th grade. Cash prizes are awarded to the teacher/parent of the winning students for arts/quilt education. All entries are exhibited in the Museum during the first quarter of the year.
Students can make a block on their own, at school in the classroom, in a home school program, with a Scout Troop, in a 4-H club, as part of some other club/organization, etc.
Be sure to check out all the rules and deadlines in the Entry Form brochure for more information.
The 2020 School Block Challenge fabric request form is available and you may request your fabric packet now. Once fabric arrives from Moda, it will be available for distribution.
