Opportunity Quilt Makers for 2019-2020
2020 Quilt Show Challenge
Did you know that the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote was approved by the US Senate June 4th, 1919 and was officially certified on August 26, 1920? (2/3 of the states were required to ratify the amendment). 2020 will be the 100 year anniversary of women having the right to vote! Lets celebrate with a quilt challenge! Kristi and Susan are asking for small quilts to be submitted for display at the 2020 Visions of Quilts show. We are defining small as having a perimeter of roughly 80 inches (which is 20×20 if it’s square- though there is no shape no requirement). If the quilt is a little bigger (or a lot bigger) it’s okay. There will be a separate category in the registration form that will be available in February. We haven’t figured out how to judge the challenge quilts yet- we’ll keep you posted. We hope this inspires some of you to get creative and make a quilt to celebrate women’s suffrage.
We are now excepting Small Quilts for the 2020 Vision of Quilts Small Auction.
Before turning in your small quilt, please print and complete the quilt auction form which is on the website, under 2020 Vision of Quilts forms. Each small quilt must have a form. If you are unable to print the form see Marcia Jacobson or Susan Ryan at the Membership table.
