Announcing the Tag, You’re It! Reader Challenge Finalists

20 Jun 2011

Letters and words aren’t just used to communicate, tell stories, or relay our thoughts. They can also be used to make our mark, so to speak. Some of us scribble in haste, others embellish with large, flourishing sweeps of the pen. But no matter how we choose to express ourselves, we all have our own way of interpreting text to leave our signature or tag.

Celebrating this spirit of individuality through text, Quilting Arts Magazine® introduced our “Tag, You’re It!” reader challenge, inviting artists to explore ways to incorporate text as a fun graphic element in art quilts.

We received approximately 110 entries, and ask the following challenge finalists to mail your entry to us so that we can better determine if we can find a place for your piece in Quilting Arts Magazine, and/or to hang in our booth at the International Quilt Festival/Houston this fall.

Congratulations to:

Sandra Champion (Both entries)

Karen Claverie

Kathy Collins

Amy Harris (“Miles Below”)

Robert Hartley

Elizabeth Kernic

Linda Kittmer

Ellen Linder

Lynne Redmond

Rebecca Roach

Melissa Snyder

The nitty gritty details

if you are a finalist your artwork must be in our offices no later than Friday, July 1, 2011, along with a flat shipping and handling fee of $15 (U.S. and Canada) or $25 (all other international). This fee, which must be paid in U.S. dollars, covers the shipping costs, packing materials, and handling for the return of your entry. The entire piece and all of its packaging must weigh less than 5 lbs. and fit into a standard shipping/mailing box (no larger than 12" x 4" x 14") or padded envelope.

 Finalists should mail their entries to:
