This is the 37th annual quilt show and competition presented by Smoky Mountain Quilters of Tennessee. The quilts in this competition are not juried and are accepted on a first come, first served basis and are limited to the first 200 quilts. We use the services of highly trained and certified professional judges to evaluate the quilts. A printed evaluation is returned with all entries. Quilts will be judged for overall appearance, construction techniques, color, design and quilting stitch. Ribbons will be given to all winners, and cash prizes will be awarded to Best of Show–Bed Quilt, Best of Show–Wall Quilt, and First, Second and Third place winners in each category. Ribbons and awards are given at the discretion of the judge. A variety of special awards will also be given. Your quilt’s safety and security is important to us. White gloved attendants will be on hand during viewing hours, and the building is secured when the event is closed.
