Open call to artists to submit handcrafted quilts designed around the theme of “blue” for an open-call regional quilt challenge in conjunction with Stitched: The Art of Quilting, a quilt festival at Crosstown Arts in the spring of 2019.

BLUE is  your chance to show your best work. Quilts can be traditional, modern or art-focused. They can be appliquéd, pieced, collaged, fused, engineered, hand- or machine-stitched, 3-D, painted, sculpted, or any variation in between. What they have in common: 3 layers and stitching.

The deadline for submission is April 1, 2019. We will accept up to 3 entries from an individual or group. The entry fee is $15 per quilt (economic hardship waivers are available).

Important Dates:

April 1, 2019: Online submission due
April 8-12, 2019: Quilts must arrive at Crosstown Arts

May 10, 2019: Opening night for BLUE
July  28, 2019: Closing date for BLUE
