The FOQ Quilt Competition is open for entries!

The competition aims to promote and encourage all aspects of patchwork, quilting and applique to enable quiltmakers at all levels to exhibit their work.

As such, the competitions are an integral part of the event and we receive over 800 entries every year. There are 17 different categories to cover a range of quilting styles, including categories for schools and young people. Visit the Categories page for a full list.

We aim to hang and judge every entry, making The Festival of Quilts the biggest celebration of quilting in the world, with over 1200 quilts on display.
