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.
- 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.
To get started, click here anytime between March 13–April 29 and post a photo of an original quilt, designed by you. Public voting on the qualifying round of quilts begins May 1, 2012. By the end of the year, we’ll be crowning TWO new McCall’s Quilt Design Stars™, one from each designer category.
Contest entries accepted from March 13-April 29, 2012. Be sure to come back and vote for your favorite contest entry quilts! You may vote for one favorite quilt per category each day during the voting period. Voting begins May 1 and continues through May 20.
