Traditional Midwest and Canadian Quilts

Open November 1, 2017 thru February 1, 2018

An exhibit of recently made traditional-style quilts by artists from the Midwest states of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Ontario. Quilts must have been made between January 2015 and February 2018.

 

Open January 8 through March 15, 2018

This exhibit features recently-made quilts that harken back to the time of traditional blocks, styles, and techniques as their design source. Contemporary quilt makers often look to the art form’s rich tradition for inspiration in their own works. We have had both Pieced and Appliquéd exhibits. This exhibit will premiere at Quilt Market and Festival November 2018. We would also like to retain quilts for a possible exhibit at International Quilt Festivals in 2019.

 

Call is open February 2 through April 12, 2018

Just as quilters create beautiful pieces of art with fabric, florists and gardeners cultivate works of beauty from the soil. The International Quilt Festival will showcase floral quilts from across the spectrum in color and splendor in the special exhibit. This exhibit will premiere at International Quilt Market and Festival November 2018. We would also like to retain quilts for a possible exhibit at International Quilt Festivals in 2019.

 

 

Call is open February 21 through April 19, 2018

Artists from all around the world incorporate influences from their own cultures into the design and technique of their quilts. This prestigious, long-running international showcase will include recent quilts by international artists who create works inspired by such. This exhibit will premiere at International Quilt Market and Festival, November 2018. We would also like to retain quilts for a possible exhibit at International Quilt Festivals in 2019.
