Ok, you Quilting Arts readers are pretty hilarious. We laughed ourselves silly at all of the entries, and we just couldn't winnow the lot down to our top favorites. Some of your pet peeves are hysterical (and hysterically depicted)! Some of them are, frankly, a little quirky, and some of them might be a wee too graphic to put in the magazine...but we want to see them anyway!
We are planning to fit as many as we can in the Dec/Jan issue of Quilting Arts, plus bring them to the International Quilt Festival/ Houston to adorn our booth.
So if you submitted a jpeg of your piece(s), please send us the quilt!
--If accepted as a finalist, your artwork must be in our offices no later than Wednesday,
September 14, 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:
