Curated Quilts is now accepting entries for our next Mini Quilt Challenge. All quilts submitted should be square, 10" x 10" up to 16" x 16" to be featured in our Mini Quilt Gallery. The Mini Quilt Gallery is a regular feature in each quarterly issue that features YOU! In every Curated Quilts issue, 25 quilts are selected for photography and included in the journal.
Please use "honor" as inspiration for your quilt design. Honor can be interpreted at many different levels including honoring those that have perished from Covid, the medical staff that has worked tirelessly everywhere, or even your emotions as we have navigated the pandemic. You can improvise or paper piece your mini quilt. We love seeing how creative everyone is and appreciate all forms of piecing in your mini quilts.
The color palette we would like you to use included in the image above, soft grey, medium grey, caramel, gentle yellow, soft pink, and brick red. You are welcome to use all or a few of the colors in your mini quilt. Prints or solids from your stash are always welcome too. We have a starter set of fat quarters available for purchase in the color palette here. - These sold out quickly! If you would have purchased a bundle, please let us know here.
You are welcome to make one mini quilt or as many as you would like for this challenge - it's up to you! Each mini quilt needs to be submitted separately. To submit your mini quilt, please take a flat, front-facing image of your quilt in natural sunlight; to best represent the color in your quilt. Color is the overarching theme that creates cohesion in the printed group of quilts.
The deadline for submissions is January 7, 2021. Everyone that submits a quilt will receive an email, with decisions. In the case that your quilt is selected, it will need to be received by January 25th for photography. We look forward to working with you!

Our new submissions process should be more streamlined for everyone, but will require you to set up an account with submittable. If you already have an account with submittable, that one will work for your submissions with Curated Quilts as well. This allows us to better communicate with everyone, and you to verify your submissions. We are excited about this upgrade to the submission process! If you have questions please reach out by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
