Display of Quilts

The nonprofit Quilt Alliance presents a contest, exhibition and auction of small wall quilts every year. This key fundraiser supports our mission of documenting, preserving and sharing the history of quilts and their makers, and is an important opportunity to showcase and record the work of quilters in the U.S. and all over the world.

Our 2017 theme is “Voices” and the only requirements were that entries must be a quilt (3 layers--top, filling and backing) and must be 16”x 16”. All techniques and materials were encouraged. As part of our mission, the Quilt Alliance records the stories of quilts and quiltmakers through our oral history projects. We value the human voice as well as your voice expressed in cloth and thread. We encourage everyone who makes quilts to enter our annual contest regardless of their style (traditional, modern, art) or technique (longarm, hand quilting, applique, pieced…) –all are welcomed and valued!

We invited entrants to share their opinions, memories, language, conversation and truths in the form of a quilt. Let all voices be heard!
