  • We will display as many entries as space will allow. Please note that the categories have been reduced to six this year. Please refer to “Marathon Quilt Show Categories” (below) to review the list.

  • The greatest of care will be taken to insure the safety of all quilts; however, we will not be responsible for loss, theft or damage to any entry. It is the responsibility of quilt show contestants to monitor their own entries during the show.  

  • Please do not submit any items that require special handling.

  • Quilts must REMAIN ON DISPLAY with no exceptions until 3:30 p.m. to allow the public to view the winning quilts and to photograph quilt show winners.
