We received some requests for clarification about the theme Boho – Indie of ‘Pour l’Amour du Fil’ 2017 Contest : it seems that some quilters are not familiar with this theme. Here is a picture to inspire you : Amy Butler, our guest of honor, at Free Spirit booth during our last Market.
Exoticism, colors, an invitation to travel to India, the Bohemian style…all of this is what our theme evokes and we hope you will be a lot of quilters to join us on this adventure because rewards are significant!
No dimensions conditions, clothing and decorative items accepted, embroidery and patchwork…simply unleash your creative ideas!
Visit the contest page inside Quiltmania magazine to find out how to participate.
Quiltmania will be blowing out 20 birthday candles this year and we want to celebrate with our faithful readers!
The “Pour l’Amour du Fil” show is the opportunity to start to celebrate these 20 years of sharing and creations with you.
Let’s participate in a big activity: the creation of “heart” blocks. They will be joined together to make a huge garland, as long as possible, which will be displayed at the “Pour l’Amour du Fil” show, in April 2017. So, you can make “heart” blocks as much as you want.
After the show, blocks will be sewn together to create quilts which will be given to children charity.
Participants have to create blocks by following our “Heart” theme.
Let’s get creative and use your favorite techniques (appliqué, embroidery, and so on) to create your blocks.
