QBC Fabric2015Here are the rules:

  1. MATERIAL: Our challenge to you is to create a quilt block using ONLY the fabrics in your packet. Please use all of the fabrics. We have included one 10” square of fabric in each packet that you may use as a background if you choose to make an appliqué block. There is no need to pre-wash the fabrics.

2. TECHNIQUE: Blocks may be pieced by hand or machine. Appliqué blocks may be sewn by machine or hand. You may use fusible web or interfacing. Embellishments such as hand embroidery, ribbons, buttons, and decorative machine stitches are welcome. Please: NO machine-embroidered blocks.

3.  SIZE: Blocks must measure 9½” x 9½” from raw edge to raw edge. This will allow a ¼” seam allowance on all edges. We are sorry but we will not include blocks in the judging that do not measure exactly 9 ½” square.

4.JUDGING: Our Quilters Affair instructors will select their favorite blocks and the block with the most votes will receive a “Best in Show” prize of $50.00. There will also be several Honorable Mentions. Each of the winners will receive their own block back along with a group of other blocks and a special ribbon. All of the blocks will be on display on Quilt Show Day.

5. LABEL: Sew or securely attach your name and address to the CENTER BACK of the block or use an address label. A sticky label in the center is easier to remove without distorting the block. Please do not tape or staple anything to your block.

6. DEADLINE: All block entries must be received by June 15th, 2019. Return your block(s) to:   Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show/QBC, 220 S. Ash St. #4, Sisters, OR   97759.
