Robert Kaufman's Annual Quilt Contest...


It is that time of year and Robert Kaufman is having several "Quilt Contests".
How much fun! You can be your creative self and maybe win some cash or other prizes.

A panel of prestigious judges from the professional quilting community will take part in determining the winners. Top tier winners will receive cash, Robert Kaufman fabric and other prizes, and their quilts will travel in a nationwide exhibit. In addition, thirty honorable mention quilts will also travel as a separate exhibition.

The Kaufman Quilt Quest creates wonderful opportunities for quilters to express their creativity and share their talents with the rest of the quilting world. As a company, the competition allows Robert Kaufman the opportunity to witness firsthand the diverse wealth of ideas and methods by which our fabrics can be utilized by the quilter. We encourage all of you to take part: novice or advanced, machine quilter or hand-quilter. The goal is to have fun and share in an inspiring creative event!

First Place – Janome Jem Portable Sewing & Quilting Machine and carrying case, $250.00, 50 yards of assorted fabric, and a 1-year subscription to The Quilter magazine.
