Quiltopia is pleased to announce our first ever Quilt Challenge presented by Majestic Batiks and The Grand Hotel in Salem. This year’s theme is “It’s Grand in Salem” as each quilt will be the maker’s interpretation of a Salem landmark or monument. Quilts will be hung in the lobby of The Grand Hotel in Salem October 5 - November 13.
Registration Packets are $25.00 each, with only 40 total packets available. There will be a $500.00 in cash prizes as well as a peoples’ choice award.
Each participant will receive two fat quarters of the challenge fabric generously donated by Majestic Batiks, instructions plus brochures from Travel Salem to help with inspiration. Registration Packets are first-come, first-serve and will be available online starting January 29 at quiltopiaoregon.com & at the Willamette Valley Quilt Festival in Albany, January 31 & February 1.
The Majestic Batiks fabrics must make up 25% of each quilt top. The quilts must measure 22 inches wide x 30 inches high. Quilts must have a top, a layer of batting, and a back, combined using the technique of quilting. All quilt techniques are encouraged such as piecing, hand or machine applique, paper piecing, etc. Embellishments are welcome. Quilts must have a 2” sleeve on the back.
Please be sure to include your mailing address in the note section at time of payment, so we can get your packet out to you as soon as possible.
