Each year up to 30 New Zealand quilts are selected to travel to the US and are exhibited at World Quilt Shows in New Hampshire (New England) , Oaks (Pennsylvania), Santa Clara (California) and Orlando (Florida). The quilts are sent in early July 20-18 and will return home in February 2019.
According to the organisers, our quilts have always been a very popular section of this show.
$9500 (US) is on offer as prize money in two categories – innovative and traditional.
There is also a Best of Country award for each country exhibiting 10 or more quilts.
Entry forms are available here now and entries close on May 14 2018. New Zealand_2018_Entry Form World Quilt Competition
