Quilters Headquarters: Jelly Roll Baby Quilt Race

Do you sew like the wind? Are you looking for a way to showcase your skills? Are you charitable? Well, the amazing gals at Quilters Headquarters have put together this fun “Jelly Roll Baby Quilt Race” contest for the fair, by providing the material, thread, sewing equipment and tools. They are also providing the grand prize of an absolutely fabulous Gift Basket of Goodies to the winner.

On top of all that, these wonderfully considerate woman will finish each of the quilt tops from the contest and donate each baby quilt (in the name of the contestant who completed the quilt top) to the pediatric department of a local hospital.
All together now, “That is SEW generous!!!”

Quilters Headquarters will provide the sewing machines to work with, and each one will be prepared identically with the same amount and quality of materials. And each contestant will be given the same size Jelly Roll to work with. The contestants will have a few minutes to inspect the material and familiarize themselves with the machines before the contest. This is the time to ask questions and get yourself set up.

This contest is based on speed. The first contestant to complete a baby quilt top, wins the round.

Other contest notes: All seams will be ¼”. The short edges of the strips will be joined in straight lines. The strips will be offset by 10” to 18” for the joining of the first/longest seams. (This will jog the pattern for you.)

The contest setting will only allow a few contestants to compete at a time. This will limit the amount of contestant slots, so register asap to snag your place in the competition. All contestants MUST be pre-registered by August 1st, 2022. You can register online or by filling out the form and sending it into the fair office. It is on a first-come first-serve basis. This contest will take place in the Arts Center of the fair, on August 9, at 11AM. Registered contestants must be here 20 minutes early for check-in. Please bring a printout of your confirmed registration.
