Last year we had some amazing quit competitions and we asked what you liked best about our website.  Overwhelmingly you all said it was the competition.    SO  we are doing it all over again.

#september19 is the tag to enter our September 19 Competition

The theme is  ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’  – sponsored by the Craft Cotton Co.

Grosvenor Shows have been so impressed with all the entries last time and you can see all our winners at their exhibitions starting with the Great Northern Quilt Show at Harrogate.  Visit the Grosvenor Show website for the full list of their exhibitions for the rest of the year.    This year we would like to see entries for a wide range of technique, modern, traditional, textile art – first timers should not be put off either.  If you have never entered before now is the right time.

The quilts should be no bigger than 42 inches along each side, and need a 3-inch hanging sleeve for display purposes.  The winner and the runner up will be exhibited at our 2020 exhibition and we will send out full instructions to our lucky winners.

Firstly, to enter you need to post pictures of your quilt into the UK Quilters Facebook Group with #september19 in the post so we can see it and count the likes.

The top six likes will appear here, in this blog, in September for final voting by website members .. so make sure you are registered as a website member as we do have more great prizes coming up later in the year.

The September Prize looks wonderful .. and it also comes with a large pack of premium grade Wadding.

The second Quilt runner up, plus one voter each from the UK Quilters FB group and website sections will also win a pair of tickets to a Grosvenor Show of their choice.

Please note you must be a registered user and/or logged in on the UKQU.co.uk site to be eligible to enter any competitions.
