April 2023 Challenge is ready to start
2023 A Star is Born Challenge
Welcome to the Material Magic Quilt Shops 2023 A Star is Born Challenge. We have chosen one bolt that just needs a little love and attention.
Registration will be open from April 4th thru April 18th. Cost $20.00 You will receive a ½ yard of fabric from the bolt chosen for the challenge with more available for purchase.
Now for the fun!
Create a quilt, using any technique you would like. There must be at least one identifiable piece of the challenge fabric in your quilt. All the rest of the fabrics are up to you. Be creative! Your quilt can be any size or shape, however no side should measure greater than 60". We will accept quilt tops so that you have more flexibility in your timing. Please cover any label which contains your identity. Cut this form in half and write your story of what inspired you to create this quilt. This has your entry # on it & will be displayed with your quilt. PLEASE DO NOT PUT YOUR NAME ON THE FORM.
Quilts must be turned in no later than June 7th
We will have an event at the shop on Saturday June 17th. Quilts will be hung, and anonymous votes will be cast! There will be some great prizes and treats! Quilts will hang in the shop through June 30th and may be picked up starting July 4th. Employees of Material Magic Quilt Shop may not enter or vote. Only one vote per person.
If you choose to play from afar, please mail your entry to us using tracking. We will return your entry after the contest also using tracking. Please note that after it enters USPS custody, it is no longer in our control. If there is an issue, you would need to deal directly with them to sort.
To sign up online for the challenge click here. We will mail you your half yard of fabric.
