YOU MUST BE A “QU” MEMBER TO ENTER A QUILT IN THE MUSEUM QUILT SHOW!

NOTE: Because of water-intrusion issues, the museum cannot hang king-size quilts. The size limit is 10,000 square inches. (Measure carefully before you start sewing on the hanging sleeve, etc.)

PREPARING YOUR QUILT FOR THE SHOW

  1. Sew on a hanging sleeve that will allow for the thickness of the board used to hang it at the Museum. (Click HERE for instructions.)
  2. Sew a label on the back of your quilt, showing the following:
    Made by (your name) OR Made and quilted by (if you did both)
    Title of the Quilt
    Year Completed
    Where Completed
    Quilted by (if different from maker)
  3. Put your name and phone number on a pillowcase to protect the quilt.
  4. Make sure your quilt is free of loose threads, hairs, dust etc. using a lint roller and/or by airing it in a dryer.
  5. Bring your labeled quilt to the museum in the pillowcase.
