American Patchwork & Quilting Super Scrappy Quilting Challenge

Sponsored by American Patchwork & Quilting

The team at American Patchwork & Quilting has such a fun challenge for us this year! Make. It. Scrappy.

Using a minimum of 30 fabrics, quilters should create a modern quilt no larger than 110” per side. How can such chaos be modern? Show us! (Yes – we said 30 fabrics. Grab solids, go through your prints…maybe use different substrates!) Quilts are entered into QuiltCon using the standard submission process, selecting the AP&Q Super Scrappy Quilting Challenge category. Submissions open September 1, 2023 and close October 31, 2023.

Super Scrappy Quilting Challenge Rules:

  1. Must be a current MQG member to participate.
  2. Eligible quilts must use at least 30 different fabrics IN THE QUILT TOP. Backing and binding fabric don’t count towards the 30 fabrics needed to qualify for the challenge. What you do with those scraps is up to you! 
  3. Size restrictions follow the same standard as all QuiltCon quilts — there is no minimum size — there is a maximum of 440″ total perimeter (with no single side larger than 110″).
  4. Quilt entries will be open from September 1 to October 31, 2023 (the same as all QuiltCon show entries).
