Each member can enter up to (3) quilts. 4. Each email entry must include: a) Your first and last name b) Name of your quilt c) Width and Length of your quilt in inches d) 2 photos in .jpg, .png, or .gif format: One full quilt / One close-up - “photos should be no larger than 1000 pixels” e) A description of your quilt, and what (to you) makes it Modern. f) Contact phone # - this is optional since we’ll have your email address but it makes for quick communication if need be.
A jury will be chosen and they will pick the best 50 modern quilts from the submissions. Jury information will be posted here as soon as details are confirmed.

If your quilt is chosen to be a part of the PMQG installment, a registration form will need to be submitted by August 15 to NWQE - no payment necessary - with "PMQG written in as the category. A 4” sleeve will need to be attached to the back (it can be temporary) for hanging.
You would deliver (by Sept 22) & pick up your own quilt from The Pine Needle in Lake Oswego or at A Common Thread in SW Portland.
If your quilt is NOT chosen for this PMQG installment, please enter it in the main part of the show! It’s always great to see PMQG member quilts throughout the show!
Time to start quilting if you haven’t already!
