The McCall’s Quilting Quilt Design Star™ 2012 contest is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever. For the first time, amateur quilt designers will be competing strictly against each other, and professional designers (those who have received monetary compensation for their quilt designs) will compete in a separate contest track. Finalists will be selected from entries on May 22, and given the opportunity to compete in up to 3 quilt design challenges.

Prizes:

  • All contest entrants will receive a link to download a handy Quilt Designers’ Easy Patterning Guide PDF.
  • All contest entrants selected as finalists to participate in Challenge 1 will receive a prize package of quilters’ goodies.
  • All Challenge 1 finalists selected to participate in Challenge 2 will receive an additional prize package of quilters’ goodies.
  • All Challenge 2 finalists selected to participate in Challenge 3 will receive an AccuQuilt® Go! Baby.

Grand prizes include a sewing machine (Pfaff® quilt expression™ 4.0 with quilter’s toolbox in the Professional Category, Viking® Sapphire™ 875 Quilt in the Amateur Category) plus $500 cash to the winner of each group. Winning quilts will also be featured in McCall’s Quilting magazine.
