AQS Quilt Week 2022
A special thank you to Havasu Stitchers member Linda Visnaw who submitted our Quilt Show 2021 Challenge Quilts to the American Quilter's Society, and eight of our beautiful "River Runs Through It" challenge quilts are semifinalists for the AQS QuiltWeek in Grand Rapids, MI, on August 17-20, 2022.
They will be displayed along with 389 others in this contest. Winners will be announced at the show and posted on the AQS website. The Best of Show quilt will be awarded $10,000. Best Wall Quilt, Best Traditional Design, Best Original Design, Best Hand, Best Stationary, and Best Movable Workmanship will be awarded $3,500 each.
AQS President Bill Schroeder says, "AQS has a longstanding history of having the best of the best quilts in our contests. Just when we think the quality of the quilts can't get any better, quilters step up their creativity even more and set a new standard of quiltmaking. This year's contests are no exception and these quilts are truly exceptional."
Quilts were entered from 38 US states and 12 countries.
Congratulations to the Havasu Stitchers! We look forward to the announcement of awards at this event.
