Keepsake Quilting, with our shop in Center Harbor, NH, and our quilting supply catalog serving the needs to quilters around the world, has been sponsoring quilt challenges for over 20 years. Twice a year quilters compete in our quilt contests - each with a different theme!
To enter a challenge, quilters purchase a quarter-yard grouping of six printed fabrics specially chosen to challenge their creativity. Each quilt design may be original or traditional and may be sewn by hand or machine. The finished 30" x 30" quilt must contain at least four of the challenge fabrics and may have two additional fabrics of the quilter's choosing.
The winning quilts from the latest challenges are often on display in the Center Harbor shop. The first and second place quilts become part of the permanent Keepsake collection and travel to quilt shows, guild meetings and museums across the country.
Winners receive gift certificates to be used for a shopping spree from the Keepsake Quilting catalog, on our web site or in the shop in Center Harbor. First place: $500, Second place: $300, third place: $100, honorable mention: $50 and staff's choice: $200.
Thousands of wonderful entries have been entered over these years, and we hope you will join us for the friendly and inspiring competition next time! Keep checking back for our next Keepsake Quilt Challenge!
