Deadlines are always intimidating…but don’t worry your guild still has time to submit your raffle/opportunity quilt into the Cover Quilt Contest!! If your guild has their Raffle/Opportunity quilt completed by March 1, 2015 and the quilt will be at your show dated between July-December 2015 then you can enter our contest.
We have five Regional Directories (South, Midwest, Southwest, Northwest & Northeast) and each regional directory will adorn a beautiful quilt that was submitted by guilds. Entering is easy!! Simply send a photo of your finished Raffle/Opportunity Quilt with your guilds information to firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s it. Once I receive your email I will respond that I have gotten it and I will enter it into our contest.
Winners receive a FREE full page ad for their upcoming quilt show. FREE directory. FREE Posters and Flyers. And on the inside first page a write up will be included about the guild and the quilt.
Here are few quilts I will received this week.
