Top 10 Reasons to Enter the Quilt Alliance’s “Playing Favorites” Contest!

10- It will distract you from any painful memories of the check you had to send to the IRS this week.

9- It’s a fantastic excuse to buy more fabric and thread in the name of a great cause. More Aurifil! More Moda!

8- A 16″ square project is something you can FINISH. (Not implying you have any UFOs stashed under the bed, just sayin’…)

7- This year’s theme allows you to create a piece in any style you like! Art quilters, browse though my older posts for lots of project ideas. 

6- My cat wants lots of company ;). OK that’s a little weak but I couldn’t resist…


5- It’s a terrific way to avoid spring cleaning.

4- Your piece will be part of an amazing exhibit at Quilters Take Manhattan and International Quilt Festival, in addition to other venues…AND become a part of the Quilt Index.

3- Last year’s winners were featured in Quilting Arts magazine!

2- The prizes are incredible. Admit it, you’d love a HandiQuilter, wouldn’t you?! (Remember, past winners and QA board members are not eligible to win so the chances of winning increase!)


1- You will be joining us on a very important mission: to document, preserve, and share our beloved quilt heritage! 

So…if you haven’t submitted a quilt yet…there’s still plenty of time. We can’t wait to see where your creativity takes you!
