Calling all quilters: art block show

It’s hard to categorize this post but what I want to do is merge art and quilting for the grand opening evening of Drygoods Design. It’s taking place April 14, which is the Ballard Art Walk and if you’d like, please send me one quilt block you think others might love as something pretty, striking or moving to hang on the wall. It would be so fantastic to not only represent fabric as art but also my lovely customers, from Seattle and across the world.

Here are the quick details:
What to send: a sewn quilt block, size is up to you but more than five or six inches square is preferred
When: please send by April 6th so I have time to stretch it over canvas and prep it for the show
How: the easiest and least expensive (depending on the size and weight, probably around $2.50 from most U.S. addresses) method will be USPS First class mail

Where: mailing address is 1752 NW Market, #223 Seattle, WA 98107

Please also include the name of the block that you would like included on the label during the show as well as your suggested price. The majority of any sale will go to the artist/sewist of the block. I will just cover costs. If you have any questions please send me an email at hello at drygoodsdesignonline.com!

  1. Cool! I’m making some quilt blocks for entry into the QuiltCon challenge, so maybe I should make 1 or 2 extra for your show. What a neat idea for your grand opening!
