Have you thought about entering a quilt show? Our own Rhonda Pierce made the quilt above as a mystery challenge through her local quilt shop. It is the first quilt she ever entered into a show. She is not a competitive quilter, yet after all the work, she decided to celebrate its completion and entered a local show. It was accepted. Imagine her delight when walking onto the show floor. She was greeted by the first quilt, her quilt, on display.

There are reasons to enter quilt shows including the competitive spirit, cash prizes, award ribbons and winning quilting supplies and gift certificates. Surprisingly, for Rhonda, the sense of joy and validation were unexpected benefits.

The blogs for the next few weeks will discuss how to go about entering your quilt into a regional quilt show. Stick around . . . by the end of this series you too may overcome your fears and decide to enter your quilt into a juried show.
