MOUNTAIN LAUREL QUILT GUILD EXHIBIT 2022

Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild will host its annual quilt exhibit from September 2 to Sept 24, 2022 at the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center. Opening reception is Friday, September 2 from 6 to 8PM. All members are encouraged to share their completed works.

You may enter as many categories as you wish, but space at the Center’s gallery will determine how many of your entries will be hung. Viewers’ Choice Ribbons will be awarded for first, second, third, and honorable mention in each category.

QUILT EXHIBIT RULES

1.    Entrants must be current MLQG members as of the June 2022 meeting.

2.    Entry must be exclusively the member’s own work except for professional machine or hand quilting.

3.    Entry must have been completed since October 2018, and cannot have hung in a previous Gmeiner exhibit. It must be clean and in good condition.

4.    Each entry must be a “quilt” (three layers either hand or machine quilted or tied). Commercially quilted fabrics may not be used in the construction of the quilt.

5.    Each entry must have a 4" sleeve casing sewn to the top back of the quilt (exception: clothing or small miscellaneous items). A split sleeve helps balance quilt hanging. Include a dowel, labeled with the entrant’s name for all wall hangings, challenge pieces, miniatures.
