Do you have UFO's?

If you have unfinished (quilt) objects just begging to be finished here is some motivation. Let's took a class and started a phenomenal quilt that will no longer work anywhere in your home. You already have more quilts than you can use. You would like to convert mountains of fabric into cash!
For approximately one week prior to the festival there is a registration process. Pre-register and bring your work at the allotted time. We are looking for traditional and contemporary quilt designs exhibiting careful construction techniques, quality fabrics in current and exciting colors and patterns. Interpretations on traditional designs are greatly appreciated.

Kutztown Festival Quilts

This is a new blog....still being constructed....ummmm...I've never done a blog, so bear with me!

The Kutztown Festival hosts one of the most exciting quilt auctions in the country. Each year quilters from the region of southeastern PA submit their quilts into our competition. There are anywhere from 1500-2200 quilts submitted each year. Judges select the top 24 quilts (bed size) out of all of the quilts submitted. On the second Saturday of the festival an auction takes places. In past years quilts have brought $3000, $7000, up to $15,500 (prices vary).

Let's talk...what do you want to share/know?
