Ever wanted to win a quilting competition?

The Best Quilting Moments Contest is your chance.

Everyone who submits their story and a picture will receive 1 free quilting design via email.  Note:  You must include your email address when asked to ensure the free design will be sent.

Read our directions and rules below to find out how YOU can win 5 additional different quilting designs and an honorable mention in our e-zine.

Then fill out the form below to submit your entry today.

The Rules - Best Quilting Moments Contest:

Only detailed stories of a quilting moment or project will be accepted for submission with a minimum word count of 150.

This is easily achieved by adding details about how the item was made and experiences making it. (ie. Did you have the supplies on hand? Was any seam ripping involved or did everything go perfectly?)

Only detailed stories that are accompanied with picture/s will receive 1 free quilting design via email upon acceptance.

To receive any free designs, a valid email address must be included with your submission. 

DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN YOUR STORY!

All accepted submissions will become a page on QuiltingSupport.com’s website.  Visitors to the site can comment on your story.  Only valid comments will be allowed to remain on the site.

There are unlimited entries.  Enter as many stories as you wish. 

Duplicate submissions will not be accepted.

This is a monthly contest. 

The deadline for all submissions is at the end of every month.

Heck that means you can enter a new story every month for a new chance to win. 

Winner Gets…

The winner will receive the following:

5 different quilting patterns (foundation, template, applique, rotary cut, or a mixture of techniques) sent via email.  

Every month it's a new set of patterns that can be won!

Again, to receive any free designs, a valid email address must be included with your submission in the proper place. 

A dedicated section in our next e-zine issue that brags about your special “Best Quilting Moments” story.

An honorable mention on Facebook, Twitter, and a few other places to encourage others to read your tale.
