We want every member to enter an item!

You can enter up to 4 quilts and any number of All Creatures Great and Small Challenge quilts or creative arts items. We may not have room for all 4 quilts in the show; we will try to enter as many as we can. Creative arts items are wearables, purses, dolls, table runners, and any other non-quilt items. We want all of the Challenge quilts to be in the show. Each item requires an application.

Youth Entries
Youth Quilters are encouraged to participate! Youth (under 18 years) must be sponsored by a FGQG member and an application should be completed for each youth item by the FGQG sponsor.

Judging
Consider having your quilt judged. This is a great way to get feedback from a professional judge. When you click “I want this item to be judged” the application will ask you additional information about your item. There is a $10 fee per item for judging.
