Non-SAQA Calls for Entry


Juried Quilt Challenge

Exhibit: January 26 - April 25, 2017

Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, 
Golden, Colorado

From the prospectus:

Evolutions 2017 is an open challenge to all quilters and fiber artists in celebration of yesterday's traditions as well as tomorrow's innovations.  Evolution can be defined as growth -- a process of continuous change, from lower to higher or from simpler to more complex.  Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum challenges you to create your concept of an evolution quilt.  Interpret evolutions any way you choose -- on a personal level, on a global level, or perhaps related to changes and growth of your favorite means of creative expression, the quilt.  There are no design restrictions.  Selected quilts will be exhibited at RMQM January 28, 2017.  Ribbons will be awarded for first, second and third place; the first place winner will be awarded a solo exhibit at RMQM in 2018.
Juror: Martha Sielman
