To Enter Your Quilt
Deadline for entries is Thursday, August 12th at the August General Guild Meeting for the Quilters Guild of Plano.
Special Exhibits is a popular feature at Quilt Plano! These exhibits have included quilts and projects from the guild’s workshops, quilts done by special-interest groups, and guild challenges.
If you participated in a QGP workshop in the past two years, please consider displaying your work in Special Exhibits. This is not a judged area of the show. Items are hung to show examples of our guild’s workshops and to inspire guests and members.
We are also presenting a special exhibit specifically for Quarantine Quilts.
Forms are due no later than Thursday, August 12th. Delivery instructions will be sent out early September.
Education is the primary purpose of the Quilters Guild of Plano. This includes inspiring and exposing the next generations to the art of quilting.
Quilt Plano provides opportunities for this education:
- A special category in the show for Youth Quilts. Quilts in this category must be made entirely by a quilter 17 years old or younger. There is no entry fee for this category.
- Due to the past year’s Covid-19 issues, we have decided to not have a children’s room for special activities. Instead, we will offer a booklet with “find a quilt” items, word search, quilt block shapes to color at home, etc. We do plan for this activity to return in 2022.
FREE demonstrations of quilting-related skills are provided during both days of the show. These demonstrations will be offered in 30-45-minute sessions. Skills demonstrated will cover various techniques, from the traditional to the newest in art quilting, including various types of applique, piecing, finishing techniques, and the latest from the Art Quilters of Plano.
