Windham Artisan Cotton 2024 Fabric Challenge
Sponsored by Windham Fabrics
The inspiring Jacquie Gering, the Featured Lecturer for QuiltCon 2024, has chosen our Windham Challenge palette this year! We are so happy we get to gaze at these beautiful Artisan Cotton cross-weaves for QuiltCon 2024. What will you make?
Quilters may use from 3 to 6 colors in the palette to create their quilt. No other fabric, neutrals, etc. may be used on the quilt top or binding. Makers may use any fabric of their choice for the quilt backing. Maximum quilt size is 110” per side.
Quilts are entered into QuiltCon using the standard submission process, selecting the Windham Artisan Cotton 2024 Challenge category. Submissions open September 1, 2023 and close October 31, 2023.
Windham Fabrics has donated a limited amount of free fat-eighth bundles in our 2024 color palette. ALL BUNDLES HAVE BEEN CLAIMED!
Windham Artisan Cotton 2024 Fabric Challenge Rules
- Must be a current MQG member to participate.
- Fabric Challenge quilts must use at least 3 of the 6 challenge fabrics — no other fabrics may be used on the front of the quilts.
If the binding is visible from the front of the quilt, it must be in one of the palette fabrics — the backing may be any fabric. If the quilt is faced and does not have binding that appears on the front of the quilt, the facing can be of any fabric.
- 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″).
- Quilt entries will be open from September 1 to October 31, 2023 (the same as all QuiltCon show entries).
