Quilters in Singapore Challenge 2008
Design and make a quilt using this year’s challenge fabric
The submitted quilts will be displayed and judged by the viewers during
A Luncheon at the
British Club on Tuesday, 4th November 2008.
Quilt challenge Entry Rules:
A recognizable amount ( minimum one fat quarter) of the
ROBERT KAUFMAN FABRIC EVERY IOTA PAISLEY SWIRL Creamsicle
ROBERT KAUFMAN FABRIC EVERY IOTA PAISLEY SWIRL Celebration
AIT-6602-203 Celebration must be used as an integral part of the entry, and must appear in the body of the quilt.
No more than two yards of the challenge fabric may be used in the entire entry, but any amount of any other fabric may be used.
The quilt can be of any shape, but the combined total of all sides of the quilt cannot be less than 72 inches nor more than 360 inches (for example an 18" x 18" quilt equals 72", a 60" x 60" quilt equals 360"). A round quilt cannot have a diameter greater than 60 inches. (Any shape is the key phrase here, yes; you can use scalloped edges and non-traditional designs!)
Quilts may include any technique and can be hand or machine quilted. If the quilting was done by someone else, this needs to be stated in the entry form.
Unfortunately, due to space restrictions we have to be firm on the maximum sizes for the quilts. If your quilt is larger than the measurements above, we may not have room to display it properly and it will not be able to be entered for the voting on the day.
Each quilt must have a sleeve attached to the top back for hanging. The sleeve opening must be 4 inches wide after it is attached to the quilt, and must be attached in a way that it will not show when the quilt is hanging. Alternately, a minimum of 4 large pegs to fit over the poles need to be provided.
A fabric identification label must be securely fastened to a bottom back corner of the quilt (a paper label pinned to the quilt is not acceptable). The label must contain the same full name and address that appears on the official entry form. The label should also contain the title of the entry.
The quilts submitted for the Challenge Exhibition will be handled many times during the set-up of the displays. While great care is taken to protect the quilts in the collection as much as possible, breakable embellishments and other breakable props may become damaged. When designing your entry these factors should be taken into consideration so that entries are not overly fragile. Quilts must be able to be folded.
Your entry form must be received by Pam Lxxxxxxxl no later than
14st October, 2008. No late entries can be accepted. This does not mean your quilt has to be finished by this day; it just lets us know that you intend to enter into the Challenge. The finished quilt has to be made available for hanging by 3 November 2008 and will be returned to the owner the day following the Quilt Exhibition and Lunch.
