Want to hang in a museum?

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Do you want to see a quilt of yours hang in a museum? The Ontario Museum of History & Art has a call for entries for “Modern Quilts : Redesigning Tradition” which will be on public display in early 2017 out right now. The deadline for written applications to this juried show  (to meet criteria) is August 15, quilts due in October. The content of the show is encapsulated in the title….traditional blocks, like those published in the Kansas City Star way back when, as re-interpreted in the “Modern Quilting” context…..original patterns (or examples) will hang with the Modern..   

Above is a quilt hanging in the shop right now I will enter…it is a derivation of the Majestic Mountain block. I have never done this before….anyone else want to join in?
