QuiltCon Entries

Earlier this week, emails went out to everyone who submitted quilts for consideration into the juried QuiltCon 2023 show. This year I submitted 2 quilts for consideration, and I was happy to learn that 1 quilt was juried into the show and 1 quilt was not. I also learned that a group quilt that I made a block for was juried into the show.

I hope that if you submitted a quilt to QuiltCon you properly celebrated that amazing milestone. I encourage you to continue to #CelebrateMyQuiltSubmission and look for other shows that you can submit your quilts to. To begin your research, I highly recommend Kelly Spell’s recent blog post that shares her favorite US quilt shows.

This is my QuiltCon submission / acceptance history:

Sequenced Quilt and Meyer Lemon Tree

Sequenced was not juried into the show. I had submitted it for consideration into the Modern Traditionalism category. It’s still one of my favorite quilts that I have made this year, and I’m darn pleased with the quilting. I think Sequenced is ready to be washed and sent to a forever home to be used and loved.



Meringue was accepted into the Minimalism category. I’m pretty unsure / nervous about that particular category, but I think it’s where this quilt fit best.

Patent Pending Group Quilt

Patent Pending Group Quilt

Last but not least, Patent Pending, the group quilt for which I made a Pinball Block, was juried into the Group quilts category.

Per the statistics that the Modern Quilt Guild shared, 2,089 quilts were submitted and the jury had the hard job of selecting 481 quilts for the show. I do not imagine for one moment that it was an easy task.

Have a good weekend, everyone. I’ll be back on Monday with the #2023PlanningParty linkup!

    Congrats Yvonne!

  2. Thank you for sharing your history of submissions, Yvonne. That’s helpful to see. It’s also helpful to see the number of submissions with the number that can be accepted – I can’t imagine that task. It would be so much fun to see each quilt, but so difficult to have to turn so many away. When you are preparing a quilt for submission, what is the most difficult part, in your opinion (if you’ve written a post on this, let me know).

  3. I was seeing a few others pop up and was wondering how you did. I am so pleased that one was accepted. I often the there should be a reject show, there are so many fabulous ones that don’t make it in (like yours).

  6. Congrats on Meringue being accepted! I agree with what Kathleen said. 🙂

    Lovely work, Yvonne. I am also struck by the fabulous PLANTS behind Meringue—wowza!! Thanks for linking to my post, I hope people find it helpful.

  8. Congratulations! They are both fantastic, but I do think Meringue is my favorite, even though purple is my favorite color! I love the quilting in it. It makes me smile!

    Congratulations on having another quilt in the show. I always love seeing your statistics. They help put things in perspective. The pinball quilt is so fun too.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
