Readers' Quilt Show: Celebrating 45 Years of Quilting

Readers' Quilt Show: Celebrating 45 Years of Quilting

In 2014, Quilters Newsletter introduced a quilt competition, putting out a call for quilts to commemorate and celebrate the history of quilt and our 45 years of continuous publication. The only rule was the quilts were required to be 45" square. The finalist quilts, featured in Quilters Newsletter December/January 2015, were judged on workmanship, visual appeal, originality, interpretation of the theme and the accompanying artist's statement. Celebrate 45 Years of Quilting was sponsored by BERNINA of America, Benartex, Aurifil, Pre-Furred Quilts, C&T Publishing and Omnigrid. The Grand Prize winner recieved a Bernina 750 QE sewing machine and all winners won prizes from the other sponsors.
