Come be a part of our "Home is Grand" 2021 Quilt Challenge, generously sponsored by Majestic Batiks & The Grand Hotel of Salem. Cash prizes will be awarded along with a viewer's choice award. We want you to share with us your take on a monument or landmark from wherever you want to call "home". This can be where you grew up, where you live now, or where you would live if you could!
All levels of quilters are welcome to enter! Quilts may be any style from pieced to appliqué to mixed media. Each 22" wide x 30" long quilt needs to be based on a monument or landmark as explained above. Registration Packets are $25.00 each**.
Each participant will receive two fat quarters of the challenge fabric generously donated by Majestic Batiks as well as instructions. The quilts will be due September 1, 2021 and will be hung in the lobby of the Grand Hotel in Salem.
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. The Quiltopia Team reserve the right to refuse to hang any item deemed inappropriate.
Registration Packets are first-come, first-serve and are available on our SHOP page.
