From February 22-25, 2018, the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival at the Hampton Roads Convention Center in Hampton, Virginia will present a beautiful collection of quilts, wearable and textile art. Many of these works will be included in special exhibits, but there will also be many competing in the Festival’s quilt and wearable art competitions.
This year’s Mid-Atlantic Quilt Competition is themed Imagine. Entrants are asked to relate how they imagined their entries before cutting fabric or starting to sew. Modern quilters are asked to create entries that reflect the theme Mid-Century Mod, emphasizing the look and feel of mid-20th century design. Pictured: Moonswept by Nikki Hill.
You will also discover unique and creative styles with the spectacular collection of garments displayed in the Mid-Atlantic Wearable Art Competition. These fabulous garments will definitely inspire you to explore new wearable art ideas for your own creation. Pictured: Kilim by Eve Kovacs
