$92,000 in prize money. Road’s Best of Show winners from our quilt contest are consistently shown in other national and international shows. [caption id="attachment_5489" align="aligncenter" width="625"]Quilt Contest 2018 Best of Show, “Fractal,” by Claudia Pfeil[/caption] Are you considering entering your quilt in our 2019 quilt contest? We are accepting entries through October 2, 2018. All upcoming entries must include the official entry form, two pictures (full view and close up) as well as the entry fee of $30. The entry fee is discounted $10 if the entry is submitted online. Road’s new and updated enrollment system not only includes an area to enter your quilt information, but it also allows the entrant to submit return shipping information themselves, so as to not have to rely on Road Staff to enter and/or change shipping directions. Return information is also automatically verified with FedEx to ensure all quilts are directed to the proper destination. Categories for submitted quilts to Road’s quilt contest have recently changed. The new categories include:

  1. Abstract – Quilts entered in this category should reflect principles of abstract design. Forms and compositions should emphasize color, line and design. Quilts should be abstract, cutting edge and non-literal. [caption id="attachment_6030" align="aligncenter" width="640"]Quilt Contest Quilt Show 2018 Best Abstract by Lou Ann Smith[/caption]

  4. Human Image – Quilts entered in this category should feature some recognizable aspect of the human form.
