Quilts of Valor
The deadline for submitting a Quilt of Valor is September 8. See the Service page for more information.
Does my quilt need a hanging sleeve (rod pocket)?
Yes! All quilts in the show need a 4-inch hanging sleeve EXCEPT:
- an Art Quilt Challenge
- a donated Quilt of Valor that has NO Room or Section number on its ID card (distributed in September 2017)
Temporary sleeves must be securely basted at 2-inch intervals, preferably on the bottom and top of the sleeve.
Tallgrass Prairie Studio has a great tutorial on adding a permanent 4-in. hanging sleeve.
Want to see a video? American Quilter's Society has a YouTube video about adding a sleeve that includes a sleeve idea for very wide quilts.
Hanging Day is October 12! Join us at 8:30am to set up the show and hang the quilts. No experience necessary!
Also, every guild member is required to work two staffing shifts during the show. Sign up for your shifts online today!
