$2500 in Prizes for Patriotic Quilt Contest to Benefit Soldiers
Win $2500 in prizes from Sulky, Aurfil, Larene Smith Patterns, Amefird & Efird, Sue Reich and Mary Kerr books. Deadline is March 31. Receive a free copy of Thanking our Troop—God Bless America Touring Quilts just for entering. No Entry Fees.
These 22” quilts will tour the US for 18 months and then be auctioned, if donated, with all profits from the books and $100 exhibit rental fees and auction proceeds going to non-profits who make quilts for wounded soldiers and families of the fallen.
http://heavenlypatchwork.com/patriotic_quilt_exhibits_and_programs.htm for 240 quilt photos, entry and rental forms. Finished quilt is 22” x 22” with 4” sleeve plus four tabs along the upper edge for pinning onto draped racks.
Please also attach an 18”wide by 5”high story label, which can be quilted and coordinated as part of your quilt art, or just typed and laminated. Story label becomes your free advertising billboard as thousands read it at each show to sell your quilts, patterns, and services or to promote your charity quilting group, soliciting volunteers or donations.
Thanks for quilting for this worthwhile cause. Reserve 60 quilts for your next show for only $100 by contacting Judy Howard, 405-751-3885, BuckboardQuilts@cox.net.
