Quilt Gallery

Welcome to the Festival Gallery Online. Here, we bring you some of the many great quilts we’ve exhibited at shows. We hope you’ll join us to see our special exhibits in person, but if you can’t, be sure to visit the Gallery periodically to enjoy a sampling!



A Celebration of Color

Whatever your style…quilt colorfully! This new judged competition was open to quilters working in any style, and who like to play with color to create a vibrant work! A $5,000 Best of Show Award and three $1,000 prizes each in Traditional, Modern, and Art categories were awarded. The quilts in this Gallery were entered in the debut contest, and appeared at the 2017 International Quilt Festival/Chicago.


The winners were:

Best of Show—Slices of Opulence by Randa Mulford

Art—King Bird of Paradise by Ginny Eckley & Susan Ennis

Modern—Playing Well Together by Jackie Nixon-Fulton

Traditional—Mystical Garden by Mary Alsop
