Giveaway Quilt Design Challenge
We want YOU to design our official giveaway quilt for QuiltCon 2015!  Proceeds raised will benefit the Modern Quilt Guild.

This quilt will be shown far and wide while promoting QuiltCon and for general MQG promotion. Additionally, we’ll create a pattern from the quilt design to sell at the show and online.

Pricing & Schedules
Mark you calendar! Pricing and schedules will be announced June 1. We are working hard to make the pricing affordable for all budgets. Volunteering is a great way to be part of much of the action for free!

 
Registration 
Registration opens June 24! Space is limited, so don’t wait to register, mark your calendar now!. Based on feedback and the response to our hotel blocks, we expect QuiltCon to sell quickly. If a workshop or lecture pass sells out, there will be waitlists available.
Super Volunteers!
Our Super Volunteer program is back! Super Volunteers will get a four-day show pass, two snazzy t-shirts, a goodie bag and are eligible to be classroom assistants if they volunteer 16 hours or more at QuiltCon. The best benefit of course, is meeting new people, making new friends and having more fun than anyone else!

Applications are due May 30, priority will be given to MQG members. Please join our volunteer e-newsletter for the latest information on volunteer opportunities.
 
Want to volunteer, but don’t want that kind of commitment? We’ll release regular volunteer schedules in the fall.
Quilt Show Entry
Entries open in July. We have more than $10,000 in cash prizes. New this year, will be cash prizes for 2nd and 3rd place. We’ll announce the details soon, but start on your quilts now!
 
Not a fan of judged shows? We encourage you to enter for “exhibit only”, your quilt will be eligible to be juried to be into QuiltCon, but you won’t be judged (or be eligible for cash prizes).
