If you’re interested in submitting a quilt for Quilt National ’13, here’s the link. The deadline is September 14.
I’m of mixed minds about judged competitions. I’ve submitted three times to Quilt National and gotten in once. Last time around they rejected what I consider the most beautiful piece of art I’ve ever made. The time I did get in it was for something kinda silly. I think it’s great to have a reason to push yourself to try something new. Not so in to being judged I have to say. It always feels very arbitrary to me, even when I did get in. Basically I’m just too busy these days to make something that may or may not ever see the light of day. And the really lost me the time they selected the quilt made out of plastic bags. Hmm.
What do you think about juried quilt shows? Any plans to enter Quilt National?
