2023 PVQA Quilt Show
Auction Entry Guidelines

Individuals and small quilt groups may enter two quilts. One is a donation to PVQA and the other is a consignment quilt. This year, quilters will receive 75% consignment for the quilt with the highest winning bid, as long as you enter a donation quilt. All quilts must be at least 1,300 square inches (minimum 36”x36”for example).

  • Individuals: Maximum two quilts

  • Small Quilt Groups: Maximum two quilts, with consignment from the highest winning bid for the group.

  • An individual who is listed as the maker to a small quilt group’s donation quilt: may enter one quilt that is your consignment. You must identify the groups’ donation quilt on the entry form. If you are a contributor to multiple small quilt groups donation quilts, you may enter up to two quilts for consignment. 

    • Only one maker per group quilt can use that as their consignment, groups should identify the contributing quilter that is using the group donation quilt as their donation to match the consignment quilt. i.e. if three quilters ae listed as donation quilt contributors only one can claim the group quilt as their consignment

  • Outreach groups: Maximum of three quilts from each group. Outreach groups are All Star Quilters for Kids, Apple Piecers, and Quilters for Hospice. All money raised goes to the Outreach group.

Group Submission from the South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild

This group of quilts was started at the SBAMQG's November 2020 Virtual Retreat. Tina Michalik and Kathrin Brown introduced techniques and provided samples to inspire us. The Lone Round Robin is based on a log cabin, sewn from the center to the edge of the quilt, in rounds. To unify our Lone Round Robins, Tina chose our center fabric, which was designed by Alexia Marcelle Abegg for Ruby Star Society +Moda, in her Alma collection: "Field in Persimmon."  Kathrin inspired us with prompts to incorporate into our rounds as we proceeded.  We were encouraged to use fabric from our stashes. The number one rule was to break the rules.  In the finished quilts, see if you can spot use of the prompts - and who doesn't like following rules!
Prompts:

     Round 1: anything you choose; Round 2: add flying geese; Round 3: include a piece of black fabric; Round 4: add a floral fabric – either an entire strip or a piece; Round 5: make striped fabric with 1” white and 1″black strips and include; Round 6: include a polka dot fabric piece or strip; Round 7: include four HST (half-square triangles); Round 8: include an Hour Glass block; Round 9: Handwrite or embroider a word or phrase about 2020 using archival pen; Round 10: Add a strip or piece of batik.
