Call for Entries for the Modern Quilts of Texas Exhibit at the Dallas Quilt Celebration



The Dallas Quilt CelebrationMarch 8-10, is one of the largest quilt shows in the country, with an average show attendance of around 10,000 each year. They exhibit 400 quilts, award over $15,000 in prizes, and have almost 150 vendors selling all kinds of quilt-y goodness!  

This year, they have chosen to create a special exhibit called “Modern Quilts of Texas” which will help introduce the modern quilting movement to attendees who may never have had an opportunity to see this type of quilting before. Through this exhibit and its accompanying booth of volunteers, this is an opportunity to highlight all of the Modern Quilt Guild chapters throughout Texas and to share our perspective and impact on the quilting community as a whole. 

The Austin Modern Quilt Guild has five spots reserved in this exhibit for our members to show off their work. Since this show is after QuiltCon, feel free to submit those same entries if you want! 

  • Follow this link to get to the Entry Form and for more information about the Exhibit and Entry Submission. 
  • This is an Open Exhibit, meaning all quilt entries submitted will be accepted until they reach the maximum number of 60 quilt entries.
  • The deadline for entry submission is February 18, 2013 and all entries will be accepted on a "first come, first served" basis.

There will also be volunteer opportunities to man the information booth at the show and chat with attendees about modern quilting.  Four hour-long volunteer blocks will be scheduled during show hours (Friday and Saturday 10a-5p; Sunday 12p-5p) and those who help will get free admission on the day they volunteer! In addition, all volunteers will receive a thank you gift from the Quilter’s Guild of Dallas. If you’d like to volunteer on behalf of our guild, then leave a comment below & we’ll be in touch. 

Thank you!
