Are you a quilter inspired by photography? Just got this press release about a new contest.
“The Eye of the Quilter: Inspirations” will debut at the 35th anniversary of International Quilt Festival/Houston October 15-18, 2009. But instead of works of fabric, this special exhibit will feature photographs—taken by quilters—of something that “inspires” them. It could be a sunset, a child’s face, a landscape, body of water…the possibilities are endless.
Entrants can submit up to three digital photo shots for the contest, and winners will be on display in a special area at the fall Festival in Houston for the more than 53,000 attendees to marvel at.
Rules and entry form for “The Eye of the Quilter: Inspiration,” are available at quilts.com, under the “Contests” section. Deadline for entry is September 1, 2009.
