More Info

Two exhibits to enter: 

1. St. Petersburg Transitions: 

Let the city’s historic or new city vibes be your muse. Pick St. Petersburg (or surrounding area) to inspire you. Landmarks, icons, businesses, histor- ical sites, parks, neighborhoods, homes, bridges, buildings...etc...are the subjects. The exhibit will reflect a community in transition and we look for- ward to your art quilt interpretation.

Any technique or fabric manipulation is accept- able as long as it maintains the character of a textile quilt. Art quilt must be artist’s original design.

Finished quilt size: Maximum size 200” perimeter.

2. Transitions in the City:

Whether you are a beginning quilter or experi- enced quilter this challenge is for you. Let the architecture, layout, patterns and textures of St. Petersburg and surrounding areas inspire you to create a modern quilt. Take a picture in your city...find the lines, patterns, movement...and cre- ate a quilt design using geometric shapes, nega- tive space, color, light, and texture.

Quilts may be abstract, improvisational, modern traditional, pieced or appliquéd.
Quilts must have three layers (top, middle, and backing).

Finished quilt size: Maximum size 300” perimeter.
