FOQ Quilt Competition entries 2021

We had a fantastic show and were thrilled to hear that our exhibitors and visitors all had such a wonderful time.  Our highlight by far was announcing this year’s Festival of Quilt competition winners.

There were 17 competition categories in total including Handi Quilter Best in Show Award which was the overall winner all the categories.

The Handi Quilter Best in Show Award went to Vendulka & Oliver Battais and the winner of The Fine Art Textiles Award was Woo Jin Joo.
