This international contest organized by the National Quilt Museum challenges quiltmakers to create an innovative quilt based on a specific traditional pattern. Winners of the contest traditionally include quilts from many different U.S. states and several other countries.
Quilts are selected for their excellence in design and techniques, their innovation, and their contributions to an exhibit showing the wide range of designs and styles the selected traditional pattern can inspire.
The 2024 theme is Roaring Twenties! The quilt, in some recognizable way, must be about the Roaring Twenties and include an interpretation of a traditional block pattern of your choosing. All quilts must be an original design.
