Submit a Quilt

Please read over the Contest Rules and Information below before submitting a quilt.
Quilt submissions do not start until the first week of February.

If you live in the U.S. or Canada, entries must be postmarked between February 1 and February 6, 2017. Entries with earlier postmarks will be returned.  If you live outside the U.S. or Canada, you may mail the entry to arrive by February 1, 2017. Please request that your entry be hand cancelled to insure a clear reading of the postmark date. Our acceptance of your entry is based on the postmark date, not the date we receive the entry (up to our limit of 180 quilts with a perimeter of 150” or more plus 40 small/miniature quilts and 36 youth quilts).
