  • Create a quilt with 10” x 10” finished measurements, including the binding, that refers to
    the number 10 in some way. You could include 10 frogs, 10 circles, 10 log cabin squares,
    the number 10 or the word ten … any reference to 10 will work!
  • Quilts must be created entirely by a single artist and can be traditional, art, modern or any
    genre that the quilter prefers. Just be sure it has 3 layers – top, batting and backing. The
    edges must be finished by binding, facing, pillowcasing or another favorite method, not to
    exceed the 10″ x 10″ requirements. Embellishments can be added, but nothing that extends
    more than ½” from the top surface. No material that is protected by copyright can be used
    without the express written permission of the copyright holder. A copy of this permission
    must be included with the entry.
  • Entries are due October 14, 2016. Each entry must consist of two photos, a full shot and
    a detail shot of the quilt hung flat and square with no impediments. Please be sure to include
    the entire quilt in the full shot, including the edge treatment.
  • The photos should be emailed to with the subject line
    MQU 10 x 10 Contest.
  • The email should include the artist’s name, address, email address and telephone number
  • Also include a brief statement (100 words or less) about the quilt, its inspiration
    and any quilting or construction methods.
