QuiltFest Entry

The 2022 AAQG QuiltFest entry process will open June 1, 2022 for Austin Area Quilt Guild members. Non-members are able to enter one quilt starting July 1, 2022.

We encourage every guild member to enter 1 to 4 quilts to be judged or for display only to help showcase the diverse talents of the our quilters and to meet the AAQG QuiltFest objectives:

  • Promote and encourage appreciation of fine quilts and the art of quilt making;
  • Educate the public as to the significance and history of quilt making as an art form;
  • Present to the general public the finest examples of traditional and contemporary quilts ;
  • Provide members an opportunity to exhibit their quilts and be judged (optional) for excellence in quilt design and craftsmanship through the presentation of awards based on qualified and impartial judging; and,
  • Raise revenue to support the functions of the guild.

We are limiting the number of entries to 425, so enter early.
