50 years of great quilts! 50 years of great classes! 50 years of great shopping! 50 years of great exhibitors!
So, we’ll be celebrating Golden Greatness: 50 Years of International Quilt Festival
The roots of International Quilt Festival began in 1974 when Founder Karey Bresenhan opened an antique store in Houston that soon became a quilt shop (Great Expectations Quilts). The next year, she held a “thank you” show, sale, and event for customers. Since then, over the years and at larger and larger venues, Festival has become the world’s greatest quilt show, sale, and Quiltmaking Academy, with tens of thousands of attendees coming from the U.S. and dozens of countries to Houston each fall to celebrate the artistry, creativity, and love of quilting.
In the past, we’ve marked important anniversaries with impressive red & white quilts and blue & white quilts, hanging dramatically from the ceiling of the George R. Brown Convention Center. For our 50th anniversary celebration in 2024, we’ll have an even more beautiful exhibit featuring. . .what else?. . . red, white, & blue quilts! Whether antique or contemporary or Art, Traditional, or Modern in design, you can submit your quilt to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibit!
Limit three (3) entries per person.
Each work must measure a minimum of 36” on each side.
The quilt can be NO LONGER than 110” ON A SIDE.
There is a nonrefundable $20 submission fee per quilt.
