Quilt Festival and Quilt Scout Mary Fons to collaborate on Scrap Quilt exhibit for Chicago show
We are excited to partner with quilting personality Mary Fons for a brand new exhibit debuting at the 2017 Quilt Festival in Chicago, April 6-8.
“Beauty in Pieces: Scrap Quilts for the 21st Century” will feature an array of contemporary-made scrap quilts juried by Fons, a noted scrap quilt maker and enthusiast.
As she writes, “surprising combinations, refreshed perspectives, riots or color, and attendant pattern adaptations mean scrap quilts are always one of a kind—just like the quilters who make them.”
Quilters may submit up to two works for consideration. Quilts must be a minimum of 60 inches wide and no more than 86 inches in length, and made between January 2014 and January 2017.
Registration for the exhibit will open on December 1, 2016, and entries must be submitted by January 27, 2017. View complete details and timeline HERE.
