The National Quilt Museum Announces
25th Anniversary Juried Contest

Over $40,000 in prizes will be awarded. 
Some quilts will become part of traveling exhibit


In 2016 The National Quilt Museum will be celebrating its 25th year. The Museum was established in 1991 with the mission to honor the work of today's quilters and bring it to new audiences worldwide. Over the past 25 years, millions of people from all 50 US states and over 70 foreign countries have experienced this extraordinary art form through the Museum's in-facility and traveling exhibits, educational programs, and advocacy efforts. 

To celebrate the past 25 years and herald the future of the art, quilters around the world are invited to enter quilts that showcase their most innovative use of materials and techniques in our 25th Anniversary Contest, The Gala of the Unexpected. The competition gives quilters an excellent opportunity to share their work with people across the country. Through exhibition, publications, and promotional efforts, the quilts juried into this contest will be seen by thousands of art enthusiasts.


The deadline for submission is December 1, 2015. 

Please contact Museum Curator/Registrar Judy Schwender with questions at jschwender@quiltmuseum.org or by phone at 270-442-8856.

The National Quilt Museum is a 501c3 nonprofit organization funded by the quilting community.
