2024 Autumn Splendor Challenge

Guidelines:

  • There will be two categories for this challenge – Quilt Category and Wallhanging Category.
  • Each quilt entered in the Quilt Category must measure 60″ x 60″ or larger in size.
  • Each quilt entered in the Wallhanging Category may be of any size.
  • The maker of each quilt will determine the category her piece will be entered in.
  • Each quilt or wallhanging submitted in the challenge must contain a minimum of 60% appliqué in the design.
  • All edges of each quilt must be sewn down by machine or hand. No raw edges will be accepted in our challenges, contests, or shows. To clarify, fused quilts with edges sewn with a machine stitch of any kind or with a hand blanket stitch for example, are allowed.
  • Entries must be complete and must include machine or hand quilting, a binding, and a label.
  • Quilts and wallhangings displayed in our previous Feather Princesses Quilt Shows may be entered in this challenge.
  • Quilts previously entered in this challenge may be entered again, except those that received a prize in a previous Autumn Challenge.
  • Deadline is the October 2024 guild meeting, where the challenge Quilts and wallhangings must be displayed during the program.
  • Princesses attending this meeting will vote on the challenge quilt they feel is the best for each category.
  • Prizes will be awarded as follows:
    • $50 to the maker of the quilt receiving the most votes
    • $25 to the maker of the wallhanging receiving the most votes
