Quilting Challenge, Sponsored by American Patchwork & Quilting

2021 Wedge Quilting Challenge

This year's quilting challenge is all about wedges! American Patchwork & Quilting and the MQG are challenging MQG members to take the classic quilt element of a wedge and make a fresh, modern design. Inspiration could include Dresden quilts, fan blocks, or any variation of a wedge!

Official category description: Eligible quilts must use a wedge or wedge-inspired shape as a primary element in the design. A wedge is defined as a 3- or 4-sided polygon that represents a segment of a circle or larger "whole" shape. Size restrictions follow the same standard as all QuiltCon Together quilts - there is no minimum size, and there is a maximum size of 440" total perimeter (no single side larger than 110"). Quilt entries will be open September 1 to November 30, 2020 (the same as all QuiltCon Together show entries). Quilts can be submitted via the form on the Quilt Show Information page.
