You can show off your mini quilt by submitting it to our Mini Quilt Challenge. A Curated Quilts mini quilt is no smaller than 10 x 10 inches and no larger than 16 x 16 inches. We post guidelines for the next Mini Quilt Challenge four to five months before the issue releases on the Curated Quilts blog, Instagram, and in our newsletter. Included in the guidelines are a color palette, the inspiration to include in your mini quilt design, and the due dates. 

We ask that you not email your Mini Quilt Challenge submission to Curated Quilts. To submit a quilt, upload a picture of your mini quilt on the Mini Quilt Call for Entries page on our website. Curated Quilts will select from the submissions 20 to 25 quilts to feature in the magazine. If selected, you will be required to send your mini quilt to Curated Quilts for professional photography. Once the issue featuring your quilt is released, Curated Quilts will ship your mini quilt back to you with a copy of the journal. 

You can see more examples of previously published Curated Quilts Mini Quilt Challenges on our blog at Do You Mini?
