Present…QUILT BLOCK CONTESTQuilters are invited to represent elements from an imaginary garden or landscape.  All block kits are identical and provide instructions for novice and seasoned quilters to ensure that all dimensions will be on par for this year’s quilt assembly.

In the Fall of 2014, a limited supply of the quilt block kits are sold for $10 in the Center’s lobby.

  Deadline for submitting completed blocks are detailed in the kit instructions. Judging for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and honorable mention will take place on the eve of the Mid-Winter Quilt Tea. Attendees of the Tea will vote on their favorite block to win the People’s Choice Award.
